Anne Peabody's multidisciplinary practice involves correlating human experience and the natural world. She employs various organic and recycled materials, including wood, glass, and metal, to expand and evolve a body of landscape-based art that includes installation, performance, sculpture, drawing, and textiles. Her work is purposely resistant to photography. The intricacies created by light striking plate glass, silk, and metal are central to her compositions and produce shifts and reflections in appearance contingent on their surroundings and the viewer's position. 
Anne Peabody was raised in Kentucky and currently lives and works in New York City.
