Gene Anderson received his degree in Architecture from the University of Illinois in 1958. He is a licensed architect in Illinois and Iowa, and has been an Iowa resident for most of his life.

Gene Anderson states about his art "In the past several years, my work has found focus on defining basic forms that relate to the unconscious memory and sensitivity at the core of human experience.  Through my travels in Africa, Europe, and the United States, I have observed and studied prehistoric, ancient, medieval, and recent forms that humans have produced to express their feelings.

In most cases, these forms relate on a subconscious level and are felt to be positive, humanistic, peaceful, uncomplicated, refined, and resolved.  Consequently my work is evolving into a very basic expression of human scale forms."
