Anna Schwartz's work is centered on themes of loss and recovery. Working predominantly in painting, as well as inquiries in its expanded field, her work investigates insistent concerns and desires in dialogue with the political and personal instance.

Her works stem from questions regarding the female body, entropy, and the ambiguous urgency present across American cultural discourse. She is curious about the permeability of bodies, the fragility of certainty, observational sensibilities, and the poetic and revolutionary potential of care. 

Anna grew up in the heart of the White Mountains of New Hampshire. She received her BFA from Syracuse University, after which she returned to her home in the mountains, where she worked as a studio assistant and political communicator. In 2021, she moved to New York City, where she joined the Brooklyn-based Vega Collective and worked out of their Bed-Stuy studio. She is currently in her first year as an MFA candidate at the University of Connecticut.
