Anthony Heinz May is a New York-based artist born in Oregon. May provides a reassignment of natural/human-made objects that are seen as obsolete/waste/refuge through various processes of appropriation and deconstruction. During his residency, his project will be based on the re-appropriation of found, natural material into pixelated amalgams of material that reflect original forms as dissolving through gridded modulation via a technological platform/lens. May’s exhibitions include Made in New York, Schweinfurth Art Center; Rube Goldberg’s Ghost, Glass Curtain Gallery, Columbia College; Fracture and Fragmentation, Thomas Hunter Projects, Hunter College; PoorQuality: Inequality, Center for Advanced Hindsight, Duke University; and Strange Glue, Thompson Virtual Gallery, Cambridge School Weston.
May’s awards and residencies include Province of Quebec Cultural Exchange Grant (2014); Djerassi Residency Artist Program (2014); EAF 2013 (2013); Brush Creek Foundation AIR (2013); and CHVAC AIR (2012). He received his B.F.A. from Oregon State, Postgraduate Degree from Cyprus College of Art and M.F.A. from Pratt Institute.
