Anna Warfield is a Binghamton, New York based artist who holds a BFA and BS in Communication, both from Cornell University. She creates text-based soft sculptures from fabric. Like concrete poems in physical space, the form and text work together to create meaning. She engages with ideas related to the body, sexuality, Femininity, and relearning. Her artwork builds on a rich history of textiles as “women’s work,” and confronts the complexities of Feminine identity and expression.
Her debut solo museum exhibition Placid Thoughts From Inside Her Eyelids is currently on view at the Roberson Museum. Warfield has exhibited with MAG Rochester, Finger Lakes Community College, Herbert F. Johnson Museum, Site:Brooklyn Gallery, Schweinfurth Art Center, Cayuga Museum, Artisan Gallery, Evelyn Peeler Peacock Gallery, and the Vestal Museum. She is the recipient of a 2023 NYSCA Artist Fellowship, a 2023 Saltonstall Fellowship and Artist Residency, Juror’s Choice Award in the 2021 Southern Tier Biennale, NYFA/NYSCA Artist Grant in 2020, and a HYPE Award in the Arts from the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce in 2019. Her Public Art debut was coordinated with Jessica Arb Danial Art Advisory in 2020.
Warfield spoke as a panelist in the 2023 Text and Techne Conference in Trinity College, Dublin and has contributed as a guest speaker at NYFA, Cornell University, and Binghamton University. Warfield works as an artist, studio assistant, project manager, and consultant.
