Anna Gray + Ryan Wilson Paulsen are two people who work together as one artistic entity. Together they make project-based work, using art as an extended form of study and a testing ground for ideas about language, politics, and social life. Utilizing a range of media and contexts, their pieces and projects are often grounded in translating the individual act of reading into a collective and visual one.

Their work has appeared in many public places as well as at institutions such as The Renaissance Society (Chicago, IL); The San Diego Museum of Art (San Diego, CA); SPACES (Cleveland, OH); Locust Projects (Miami, FL); Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (Portland, OR); and on the pages of NOON Literary Annual. In addition to teaching at PSU, they enjoy working on the land where they live and spending time with their son, (a sometimes chipmunk by the name of Nutmeg Elements Bridger).
