Anna Orbovich’s installation, An exploration in shifting terrains, is a collection of layered terrains and formations created through the labor intensive processes of paper making, printmaking and metal casting, imagining landscapes from multiple viewpoints that shift in scale.

Fascinated by the lines, textures, formations and moments that have shaped this earth, Orbovich is interested in the interconnectedness of trails and waterways and wonders about how the influence of human footprints has an effect on the environment through resource extraction and the desire to explore the wilderness. Her creative practice is an exploration of materials, processes, ideas, and the outdoors with an effort to find a way to cope with making work knowing that it is impossible to leave absolutely no trace on the environments she is so amazed by.

Anna Orbovich is a Minneapolis-based artist working in printmaking, paper making, and sculpture. Her deep love for wild spaces and time spent working on trail crews is the bedrock for her creative practice where she explores the relationships humans have with the environment. Orbovich earned her MFA from the University of Minnesota in 2019 with an emphasis in printmaking and foundry and earned her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in printmaking and book arts in 2012.
