Jack Anderson was born in the city of
Lethbridge, Alberta. Anderson's educational background includes
an undergraduate degree and Master's degree in the field of Fine
Arts. Through Jack's work, he looks at the lighter side of life
and art. For example, Blacked-Out (1984), is a piece that looks
at society and how it functions within itself. In this particular
piece Jack removed all the electrical appliances, except the ceiling
lights and the telephone, from his home and relocated them into
a gallery. During the duration of the show, Jack, his wife, and
his three year old daughter stayed at home, resorting to a life
without power.He is currently residing in Regina, Saskatchewan
