About The Artwork

ADDITIONAL UNFRAMED SIZES & EDITIONS SMALL - 14.5” x 19.5” (edition of 25) MEDIUM - 21.5” x 29.5” (edition of 20) LARGE - 28.5” x 36.5” (edition of 12) MURAL - 36” x 48” (edition of 10) Sculpting from the remnants of decorative 19th C. mirror frames, mouldings, wall sconces and Victorian cast Iron obscurities, Church takes the notion of an almost uncomfortable and untouchable beetle and turns it into a thing of extraordinary tactile, architectural beauty. The Stag Beetle is one of the most spectacular of their genus, so named because the male’s oversized jaws resemble the antlers of a deer. As well as being one of the largest beetles, it is sadly one of the rarest. Used for both decorative appeal (think Art Nouveau jewellery of the 1900’s), amulets and in shamanic symbolism for its auspicious qualities, this trophy of sorts may not be around for much longer. "In this series I delve into memories of childhood trips to museums when I would make a beeline for the Open Study specimen drawers. Shiny beetles, magnificent butterflies and giant moths from around the world were all there with their taxonomic classifications for me to marvel at." - Anna. Limited Edition Each print is created with care using archival paper and superior inks. These materials are tested to last a life time.

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.
