Jeremy Anderson: Sculptor, Teacher 1921-1982

He was described by critic Thomas Albright as one of the two "Founding Fathers" of San Francisco Bay Area sculpture. In Jeremy Anderson's work can be found eccentric references to totems, altars, ritualistic figures, and sometimes elements of weaponary and sexuality. And the roots of the Bay Area Funk Movement can be arguably traced traced to his influence as well.
