Anna is based in Sydney and makes animal sculptures from paper and copper pipe. Her figures require both her artistic vision and a definitely challenging procedure in means of craft and technique.
A portfolio I strongly suggest you check out!
A part of the artist’s statement: “I have a carefree but fully engaged approach to life and art. I find inspiration in the smallest of things because I “see” with these inquisitive and always looking for magic eyes. My work incorporates many approaches and mediums all in one, but then so does life.”
A very interesting statement by the artist: “So to speak, I have been mapping the mysterious land between physical and emotional geography. I want to attain something sublime. The entrance of the way is detail. The detail is the key point of nature, and we are part of nature. Even though the actions are simple, I do not try to draw / cut mechanical or perfect lines in my work, for subtle natural distortions convey the nuances of human emotions, habits, or biorhythm. For this reason, I take care to make all works by hand.
When I am drawing or cutting lines, I am interested in observing the power of the changing growing shape. This dynamic shape becomes an entity in itself, "Another geography." In a sense, the empty space is myself, and the materials represent the present world. Cutting book work is like collaboration for me. And it is important to choose the materials carefully because printed matter conveys a message automatically. The relationship between the linear actions and the materials is like the relationship between human beings and their restricted environment, a connection that is interested in me, too.”
"Color is fun, color is just plain gorgeous, a gourmet meal for the eye, the window of the soul." - Rachel Wolf
