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.
This exclusive arrangement with the artist establishes a total maximum number of prints based on a single original high resolution digital image of a specific work of art created by the artist for limited and exclusive reproduction based on different paper type and/or dimension of the print. Certain information about the limited edition print and sale will be provided to buyers in a Certificate of Authenticity which is included with the purchase of each limited edition print through Limited by Saatchi Art. Saatchi Art is selling "limited edition prints" in compliance with the standards of disclosure established by California law regulating the sale of limited edition art prints. The image for any limited edition print may, in certain circumstances, be licensed by the artist for reproduction on other consumer products, such as phone cases, apparel and other home décor accents (but excluding two dimensional art prints).
California law provides for disclosure in writing of information concerning certain fine prints, photographs, and sculptures prior to effecting a sale of them. This law requires disclosure of such matters as the identity of the artist, the artist’s signature, the medium, whether the multiple is a reproduction, the time when the multiple was produced, use of the plate which produced the multiple, and the number of multiples in a "limited edition." If a prospective purchaser so requests, the information shall be transmitted to him or her prior to payment, or the placing of an order for a multiple. If payment is made by a purchaser prior to delivery of the multiple, this information will be supplied at the time of or prior to delivery, in which case the purchaser is entitled to a refund if, for reasons related to the matters contained in such information, he or she returns the multiple in the condition in which it was received, within 30 days of receiving it. In addition, if after payment and delivery, it is ascertained that the information provided is incorrect, the purchaser may be entitled to certain remedies, including a refund upon return of the multiple in the condition in which it was received.
Buyers of limited edition prints are entitled to a Certificate of Authenticity upon request prior to placing a limited edition print order online, or at the time of or prior to delivery of the limited edition print. Every limited edition print sold through Limited by Saatchi Art comes with a Certificate of Authenticity which includes a certification that the "information and statements contained therein are true and correct."
Saatchi Art is the exclusive distributor of limited edition art prints available for sale on Limited by Saatchi Art. In certain circumstances, the artist of a work available as a limited edition art print on Limited by Saatchi Art may license the image of the subject work for reproduction related to the sale of other consumer products, such as phone cases, apparel and other home décor accents (but excluding two dimensional art prints). The manner and consumer goods on which the image is reproduced are at the discretion of the artist, but the artist is precluded from permitting the subject work to be made available for reproduction on two dimensional art prints other than limited edition prints available for purchase on Limited by Saatchi Art.
A limited edition print that recites the number 2/25 means that the buyer is purchasing the second published print in a maximum print edition of 25 total prints (plus any proofs) of a specified size and dimension based upon a high resolution digital image of the artist’s original work of art. The Certificate of Authenticity tells the buyer if more than one edition has been published from the original image. For example, a print numbered 2/25 in a limited edition of 25 could be sold measuring 12" x 24" and another print numbered 2/15 in a limited edition of 15 could be sold measuring 24" x 36". The Certificate of Authenticity in that example would show that the total number is 40 prints (plus any proofs).
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.
