ANN CHRISTOPHERRICHARD CORK Book Number: 88805 Product format: Hardback
A beautiful glamorous Royal Academy of Arts 2016 first edition publication. Ann Christopher is primarily a non-figurative sculptor who works in cast bronze, stainless steel and Corten and who creates series of works on paper, using many combinations of media. This elegant publication showcases her understated works and their connections with a vast spectrum of sources, encompassing fossils from Hertfordshire, prehistoric standing stones in Avebury and early Aegean figurines. Made of bronze and leather, graphite or aluminium, hand-worked, hand-cut etching, here are drawings and collages, a Shadow of Light in sterling silver, Broken Silence of 2007 in bronze and polymer, some sculptures higher than buildings like Towards the Sky of 2000 in Portishead. There are conté and aquatints, hand-worked with graphite and pastel showing double shadows or bronzes to contemplate like Lines Remain of 1992 or Beyond Silence nestled among ferns in a forest for tranquil contemplation, a slate bronze and water Dark Reflections of 1984 splashing with water in a pond or mounds of pavilions. There is a short tribute to other sculptors like Hepworth and Epstein and their influence and Ann's output. 176pp, 9¼" x 11", glossy glamorous pages, colour throughout.
