Anna Church

Finder, collator certainly, curator indeed, creator for sure, and composer definitely. Anna's work is highly conceptual but not at the expense of aesthetics, illustrating complex ideas and concepts but in ways that are easily digestible and tangible to her viewers. She creates works that are layered with meaning and stunningly beautiful. 

With what many would enviably term, a superb ‘eye’, Anna has the ability to group objects to form compelling, thought- and emotion-provoking compositions. You can’t help but engage on various levels when viewing her 'Insignia' series and find yourself reflecting with nostalgia on your own personal journey and sense of place as her themes and the handpicked vintage objects unveil themselves. (‘Insignia’ explores the ideas and symbolism inherent in the badges we as individuals or groups create to identify ourselves).

Anna who is gregarious by nature and by no means a 'solitary artist' loves nothing better than conversing and collaborating! As a lover of things with a past life, who has an affinity for the oddity and is an advocate for the art of retaining fond memories, You'll find Anna in her element when she is creating stylised photographs for private commissions. Through this medium Anna has the opportunity to assemble her clients treasured curiosities and heirlooms into beautiful still life, bespoke (one of a kind) photographic print. 

Anna's Art, her home and interior styling work have been showcased in numerous publications - Inside Out (Australia), Elle decor (UK), NZ Your Home & Garden, HomestyleLife & Leisure, House & Garden, Her and Viva and Art t & design blogs.
