Press Release

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – This fall 2019, Rutgers Art Library (71 Hamilton St, New Brunswick, NJ 08901) will host a free public exhibit of artwork titled “Recombination” by Anna Erickson, a graduate student from Rutgers, Department of Landscape Architecture. The work was part of an independent study project with Associate Professor, Richard Alomar and will be on display from Sept 1- October 31, 2019.


From the artist Anna Erickson:

“During the Spring 2019 semester, 45 sketch strips were generated (only 38 are displayed) to explore methods of division and combination of elements that make up a 'place' through mixed media. The first two drawings of a strip focused on division, using media such as ink, watercolor palettes, color pencil, and watercolor pencils to split a scene into two halves of a whole place. The third and fourth images focused on combination, putting together the images that were broken apart and wrapping an additional layer of digital effects around them, forming a new 'whole' image.”
