Anna Fritzel

Program Description (from Anna): "The COVID lockdown, and following depression, stifled my ability to think about anything. I was feeling frozen and wanted to break out and decided to begin working on some ideas for my current dissertation exploring the context of women being frozen in representations via screen and print media.

I used flowers because of their stereotypical ties to the feminine gender and because of their color possibilities. I have created thousands of these specimens of color and the combinations are limitless, as are the abilities of women everywhere."

Bio: Anna Fritzel is a Plano multimedia artist based in photography who has been educating college photography students since 2005. Currently a PhD candidate in Aesthetic Studies at the University of Texas at Dallas, she holds a BS in Photography as well as an MS in Art from Texas A&M Commerce.

She has also studied photographic alternative processes at the Maine Media and Photographic Workshops. She is a member of the Society for Photographic Education as well as the Texas Photographic Society.

Anna’s current work addresses perceptions of and restraints on women in a 21st century world still dominated by patriarchal institutions, particularly mass media and its messaging. She also focuses on aging, perception, grief, and exploring what it means to be "grounded."
