Lecturer I - Part Time

UMA South Paris Center


Annika Earley makes multidisciplinary work about transformation, in-between states, and the experience of being a woman. Her work focuses on Swiss and German folk and fairytales and how their depiction of female characters reflect current feminist issues. Her work centers around drawings, prints, written pieces, and mixed media installations. In addition to visual work, Earley also creates binaurally recorded audio pieces that often echo traditional, choral folk music. She is currently writing an opera that reexamines the narrative of the German siren, Loreley, whose story is often told from a male suitor’s perspective.

Earley spent most of her childhood in rural Switzerland but located to mid-coast Maine in 2000. She received a BFA in Painting and Drawing from the New Hampshire Institute of Art, an M.Phil of Human Ecology from the College of the Atlantic, and an MFA from Maine College of Art. Her work was most recently shown in Curious Nature at the Institute of Contemporary Art at MECA in Portland, Maine.
