Anthony Luensman is a multimedia artist who recently moved his studio from Cincinnati, Ohio to Tucson, Arizona as one means of making a clean break from his past work of the previous 25+ years:

Having had a successful career creating work in performance, sound, sculpture, video, photography, and installation, I began to miss focused time in the studio rather than maintaining a large infrastructure to support multimedia projects. Instead, I began to desire steady hours in the studio simply confronting the object(s) at hand.

A grant from the Joan Mitchell Foundation in 2014 allowed me to 'start over' in life and studio and so was afforded the transition to the Southwest where I am concentrating on painting and works-on-paper while carrying with me my past dedication to the belief that every work is a small invention begun by accident.
