About Anna Church
Anna Church is a SCULPTOGRAPHER - an artist who combines forms of three dimensional sculpture with the process of photography. Church's work is a brilliant and unique composition of found objects that are meticulously arranged, giving birth to a sculptural form. Bittersweet nostalgia, humour, social commentary.....it is all eloquently captured through the lens of the camera, producing an image that teases and tricks the eye. Nothing is as it first appears. Church starts her creative process with a concept and through the collection and arrangement of objects and collation of ideas, she conveys a theme of re-identifying or promoting the unconventional by transforming them into another form that resonates with the viewer. Church often uses satire to gently push the conversational boundaries taking care not to offend. Her ultimate goal is to honour aesthetic beauty, to captivate and encourage conversation by creating art that is accessible and relatable but with just the right touch of provocation.
