Anna van der Ploeg is an interdisciplinary artist and printmaker. She currently shares a studio space with several other artists and a printmaking press. Van der Ploeg’s parallel role as a beekeeper permeates her visual language; the rich, ritualistic performance of it allows her to mine the metaphors of the veiled figure. She is interested in proximity to discomfort, and in what we choose to reveal of ourselves.
