anna korver nz sculptor

Anna Korver is an established New Zealand artist with a BFA in sculpture from the University of Canterbury. Korver works nationally and internationally, exhibiting, attending symposiums and completing commissions.
Korver's new works continue themes of female identity.
Her works are autobiographical and use the female figure to communicate her experiences.
These abstracted and minimilised forms conceal complex ideas about feminine roles and the projection of the inner self thru the outer form.
New developments in her work include the mixing of different materials, in part influenced by the installation process.

Anna enjoys this as a statement of human involvement with the environment:
"...the figure represents myself in varying states of tension and emotion but the new elements are recognising the structure, the strength and with that the weakness of the communities we are connected to."
Other developments in her works include a more masculine nature, developing elements of balance, symmetry and strength. Anna works in wood, bronze, marble and other hard stone as well as cast glass. Anna was a former trustee on the board of Eco Artists New Zealand, a charitable trust that uses funds from the sales of art to help environmental projects, specifically focusing on native New Zealand species and their ecosystems.

"This exhibition explores the two sides of my reality from the static works portraying myself in the present form conjuring hard, but delicate lines to the light hearted, tender works which refer to memories and dream states produced from a distortion of reality and transient, personal thoughts that revisit the playful mischief and mystery of childhood."
