In Focus: Embracing black femininity and vulnerability with Anna Gibson

Anna Gibson is a Barbadian contemporary artist who explores multiple mediums, crafting images of body manipulation through realism and expressionism. She has been practicing for over 5 years completing her Associates and Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts (2017).

“Festering Fantasy” 2022

Gibson’s artwork centers around exploring and exposing vulnerabilities women have about their differences to each other, and how they seek to physically mask or morph their bodies, to achieve acceptance within their cultural, racial and social environment. The most recent artworks are crafted around the evaluation and comparison stage of your physical image. Each angle taking advantage of the mind and body’s, vulnerable disposition, while emphasizing these self-inflicted processes of metamorphosis, using harsh and soft combinations of drawing/ painting, and exaggerated shapes and forms of “abnormality”.

Focusing on insecurities, my artwork explores and exposes the vulnerabilities women have about their differences to each other, and how they seek to mentally and physically mask or morph their bodies, in an obsessive process of evolving, using various beautification methods to achieve acceptance
