Ebb and Flow are the latest works by Toronto artist Anna Church; a limited edition series of two
monochromatic pieces that dynamically explore the relationship between shape, form and negative space.
The two pieces represent an extension of Church’s specialty of sculptography. Manipulating the fabric echoes
the sculptural nature of her typical methodology; stretching, hanging and draping it into layered reliefs that
quite literally ebb and flow. The contorting fabric simulates recurring ridges and layers, rhythmical patterns
that seem to extend beyond the constraints of the frame.
The gestural shapes illuminate the power of suggestion, inviting the viewer to experience the artwork with an
instinctive and emotive response to the work’s sense of movement vs structure. In this duality, the viewer is
reminded of life’s dichotomies, the ebbs and flows and pull of different directions.
Taking inspiration from Irving Penn photography, the simplistic works of Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and Ellsworth
Kelly’s modernist and minimalistic approaches, Church suggests the two images can work when hung
individually or in a diptych of complimentary pieces.
Says Church “My vision leading into the creation of this series was to craft something that was simplistic and
monochromatic in its approach with hints of nostalgia referencing a bygone era of high fashion and black
and white photography. I was committed to achieving this using the sculptural and tactile nature of my
sculptographic medium and methodology”.

Sculptography is my alternative to putting paint to canvas. Instead of paint, I build, arrange and sculpt my visions to express my ideas. Photographing my creations has enabled me to bring my tactile, 3D sculptural creations to a 2D viewing platform. Enabling them to be hung and enjoyed as wall art. Through my Sculptographic process, I build artworks from an array of surprising elements, which I then capture in a photograph, yielding Fine Art Prints of Limited Edition. I’m fortunate to say the creative journey is as stimulating as the final result. Finding the objects that I want to work with and that will fit the thesis I want to explore, is like hunting for treasure! It’s the feeling of collecting pieces for a puzzle that were never meant to be one! This discovery was accidentally birthed and brought to fruition when I created my first Sculptography artwork ‘Crowning Glory’ and has been further developed into many different forms of my Sculptography practice throughout my career as a full time artist. I love that this process allows me to develop new concepts without limiting my ideas into a singular style. I love being able to creatively explore and push new boundaries upon each new series I create. There has recently been an evolution that has come to my work as I experiment with the latest printing technologies. Printing my work onto a linen fabric makes my work look like they could easily be a pristinely rendered painting. I love the outcome of this evolutionary aesthetic process, I hope you resonate with it too! Art is an extension and way in which we can express our inner style and project that to others. Like a personal insignia, you have chosen to represent your feelings within the walls you reside in. Alongside bringing joy and fulfilment to your interior vista and wellbeing everyday. I’m personally inspired by, and to create artworks that can be enjoyed at first glance and expand their themes with ongoing introspection. My artworks are surrealist in their approach, yet all possess an ease that renders them comfortable in a multitude decor styles and environments. It’s lovely to know that my artwork resides in beautiful homes around the world, having sold and exhibited Globally in; New York, Miami, London, Amsterdam, Toronto and my native land of New Zealand.
