Art Description

Photography: Giclée on Paper.

The 'At Your Service' series pays homage to the unsung hero's of service.

It's a fair step up in life for a gravy boat to become a service medal (or part of one at least), but in artist Anna Church's 'At Your Service' series, one manages to get that promotion ... as does a silver serving tray, a tea cups, tea strainer and ice tongs.

'At Your Service' is a stunning series of works in limited edition by Church which compel at least a second and third look. As in her previous series, Church has brought together a collection of objects and arranged them to resemble something other.

Each large-scale photograph appears to be of a service medal, however on closer inspection, it reveals itself as being composed of a number of items of serviceware. Silver spoons, linen napkins, platters and the aforementioned gravy boat all make an appearance as the more masculine bigger picture unveils itself to be far more feminine in its intricate detail.

The ideas underpinning 'At Your Service' were two years in the polishing and Church spent months scouring antique dealers and friends' china cabinets for just the right piece for each composition. The components had to be perfect, both thematically and aesthetically. For example, 'Sunday Roast' is made up of a silver gravy boat, serving spoons, carving knife and fork, linens and china.
