Anna Church manipulates ‘Planes of view’ in this series by creating unique compositions using a refined group of props and materials. Viewed together, the spectator is challenged to consider notions about the multifaceted nature of connectivity.
In their original form these decommissioned mechanical molds could have been easy to overlook. They are now given a second life by being assembled into sculptural compositions by Church. Together the whole composition becomes greater than the sum of its distinct and separate parts.
With connectivity as her theme, Perspective Assembly also highlights the repurposing of old materials and focuses on sustainability and unity. Church investigates and emphasizes our unlimited ability to seek and see new connections and outcomes, in ever evolving ways. In an era where headlines feel heavy, the notion of exploring and developing new narratives is a hopeful message.
Each fine art photograph is printed on natural Belgian linen fabric, intended to be stretched and framed like that of an original canvas. This is a Limited Edition series.
The moulds were sourced from Smash Selvage, a vintage and curiosity resource of Anna’s, located just outside of Toronto. The moulds originated from Deck Brothers, a Buffalo, NY company that was founded in 1924 (their stamp is visible on some of the parts). The maker of industrial steel products and small appliances utilized these moulds for in-house machinery but the retired items find new life in Church’s hands – with her photographic, sculptural eye. The disused objects were transformed into geometric abstractions and improvisations to develop new art forms.
Says the artist;
“These moulds seemed destined for a second act as still-life subjects. The way the light refracts and wraps around the industrial objects emphasizes a beauty perhaps not considered in their original, mechanical usage and it inspires me to consider the connection we have to historical utilitarian objects, to find a striking beauty within that.”
To accompany the Perspective Assembly series, Anna is releasing a limited edition run of studio studies entitled ‘Assemble’. Developed as case studies for ‘Perspective Assembly’, these accessibly priced prints provide a behind the scenes glance at the development of the ‘Perspective Assembly’ new fine art series.

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.
