Suspended Animation - Anna Masters solo exhibition

5th July - 28th August
@ 45 Park Lane, London W1K 1PN
Born in England in 1982, Anna Masters is a mixed media artist, creating sculptural works that combine a range of organic, recycled and found materials. Graduating from Staffordshire University, UK in 2005 with a First Class Honours Degree in Fine Art, Anna later gained a Distinction for her Masters degree in Art Policy and Management from Birkbeck, University of London.

Masters was awarded a grant from Arts Council England in 2013 for the development of her mixed media works and have subsequently been exhibited widely within the UK, Europe and United States.

“I have a deep love of materials - of surfaces and textures - but beyond that I’m interested in the symbolism that becomes ingrained in materials and how this can be manipulated and altered. Does a rose still symbolise everlasting love once it has died? Can clock parts represent time if taken apart from their contingents and prevented from working? And is there value in money that can’t be spent? I’m drawn to the uneasy relationship between the cultural meaning of objects and their often contrary material values, and how these might express quirks in society and human nature.

I try to make works that are both beautiful and interesting. I love for people to get enjoyment from my work, and for the works to pique their curiosity about the things around them.”
