Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The floral language is ultimately a positive one, traditionally welcomed throughout many eras and cultures. Further investigation reveals a cryptological communication. While modern enthusiasts perceive generalized signifiers (such as red roses for love, yellow for friendship), an interest in floriography (the language of flowers) was significant in Victorian England and 19th Century America. Gifts of blooms, plants and specific floral arrangements revealed coded messages to the recipient, often allowing a sender to communicate unspoken feelings.

Inspired by this rich history, Anna applies this psychology to interpret a modern social commentary; how do we communicate and how are we communicated to? Anna theorizes; if what we perceive through social media is real, and beautiful; do we care if it’s artfully staged or deliberate in it’s messaging? Do we bother to seek out a hidden meaning? Be it a disguised aspirational message or a deliberate advertisement? Are we willing to suspend disbelief?

The juxtaposition of soft florals with the stark colour theory, as well as the fact that this entire series is composed of fake blooms is a deliberate variant on the floriography theme. Another significant point of inspiration and symbolism for Blurred Lines was Hermann Rorschach’s inkblot tests. Upon first inspection, you might just see the beautiful arrangement. However, if you look closer, there’s an unsymmetrical mirror version; it’s blurred self.

This deliberate variant is designed to trick your eyes and hopefully spur the viewer to analyse the difference between what you visually perceive and what your mind understands. Much like during a Rorschach assessment, the image may be rotated and interpreted using a variety of factors; and is also largely dependent on the affect state of mind of the viewer.

Artist Profile

Born: 1977

Hometown: Waiheke, New Zealand

Based in: Toronto

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.

In an age of sensory inundation, the visuals you surround yourself with should bring joy, create fulfilling vistas in your home and materialize your own aesthetic self-expression and nurture your visual wellbeing. My ethos is; Art should inspire you to look deeper yet be a welcome cohabiter.
