Anita has been a lecturer, photographer, artist and arts facilitator for ?many years. More recently she has turned to sculpture to externalise ?personalised philosophies and beliefs through exploring historical, religious and mythological characters and their associated symbolic? narratives.??
Her work represents both the physical and the abstract – the exterior being? associated with the reality that affects us all as a condition of the ?material world and the interior signifying the intangible world and the ?authority we have within ourselves over our spiritual and emotional ?direction.
I love classical and religious depictions of gods and man and how fragments? of ancient myths and beliefs, even now, forge their way into contemporary? seminal works, evoking an immortality of human spirit that is an homage to? human endeavour.?I make connections between our existence in the world and the interplay of? our inherent spirituality and humanity, allowing the interior space to? strengthen the narrative of who and what we are in today’s society.
