About The Artwork

Ann’s juxtapose titled Where’s My Spoon features a humorously posed wooden Buddha stretching with both arms raised while standing inside an empty bowl. A fork rests on the edge. Many Buddhists follow a strict lacto-vegetarian diet. Like many of her juxtaposes, this piece shows Ann’s eccentric way of looking at society. Ann calls her sculptures “juxtaposes”; she creates them by combining objects that don’t ordinarily go together, and in an unexpected way. They tell a story that each viewer may interpret in his or her own way. To create these works, Ann scours antique shops, antique fairs and auction houses to collect decadent ornaments, bone china, objet d’art, curios and quirky objects. She then juxtaposes two or three ‘objet’ together. The name of each piece takes even longer to decide on and is as important as the work itself.

Ann’s artwork is the creative platform she uses to express her concern for the future of our planet. She is always observing society for this reason, quietly researching as she goes about her daily life, while visiting inspirational London locations like Kew Gardens and the Wellcome Collection, and on her travels to the many galleries and museums in and out of London. Ann's painting is a nod to the beauty and intricate details of nature and the environment which she so appreciates. On some of her canvases, you’ll see the complex folds of roses, stamen reaching upward to soak in the sun, the gentle sweep of colour gradients in petals and their soft unfurling at the edges. Most recently, she has delved into an exploration of abstract art, layered oils on canvas board depicting the rhythms and music of nature. There are two distinct series in this collection. In the cooler blues of the “Rhythmscape Requiem” series, she is creating poetic rhythms that echo across the canvases, symbolising the vulnerability of nature. Dark shadows are softened by light vibrant colours pulsating through them in the movement of the paint. The patterns are inspired by her observation of different tree barks. This was her starting point as she tried to understand the complex structures of a this protective layer that evolves continuously over time. In the series of “Smitten Symmetry”, the vibrant colours jump and crackle in energetic spurts across the canvas to convey Ann’s anguish for the future of the plant world. In juxtaposition to Ann's paintings are her playful, whimsical sculptures. Scouring charity shops for abandoned treasures, she sets about re-creating the past, telling stories and reviving the charm of manmade objects otherwise discarded. This work is inspired by Ann's concern for our environment in a throwaway society as well as an attempt to preserve a small piece of history. Ann has had a distinguished creative career, running a successful animation studio through which she won many awards for her work, culminating in two golds at the New York Film Festival. One of her pieces of sculpture has been displayed in the foyer of London’s Victoria & Albert Museum and she has shown her collections in many exhibitions over the years. She works from her studio by the Thames in Brentford. To read more, see a list of exhibitions and browse Ann's latest work, also visit her website for painting and sculpture and http://www.
