About The Artwork

In her latest series, Sculptographer Anna Church twins her artistic talents with her longstanding penchant for plants. Photo. Synthesis. explores our affinity and connection with nature through a deliberate focus on what may be initially perceived to be common houseplants. The multi-layered compositions are created through photography and hand rendered collage; each leaf has been individually photographed, cut out, layered and re-shot. The effect almost looks digitally rendered but it is handcrafted. Church transposes accustomed plant shapes into new configurations using a different light source for each individual plant or leaf, an effect that manipulates shadow and scale to create an optical illusion with deliberately confusing depths of field. Removed from their traditional context, viewers are invited to reexamine their sculptural beauty as Anna highlights their individual forms, colours and textures. With their moody lighting and the highlighting of the plants’ fine details that recall illustrative brushstroke or pencil drawings, the Photo.Synthesis series hearkens back to Flemish still life arrangements while simultaneously reinterpreting our connection with nature in modern life. Her thesis regarding nature’s sculptural diversity offers a new commentary about the modern art-lover or urban dweller’s interaction with plant life. By deconstructing and elevating the plant forms, Church answers our craving for sophisti- cation and a collective desire to curate even these natural, household objects. In doing so with abstracted shapes and dramatic lighting, she invites her viewer to engage with each leaf’s unique artistry, inciting them to emerge from the background of their dwellings and dramatically become the focal point, thus observing the ongoing relationship we have to plants in interior design, in art, in our homes.

The term "limited edition" has various meanings depending upon the artist, publisher, distributor and seller (or reseller). Saatchi Art uses the term "limited edition prints" to denote two dimensional art prints available through a pre-publication license agreement between the artist and Saatchi Art and sold pursuant to an exclusive prints publication arrangement.

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.
