Unique and statement
Anna Masters' mixed media art is recognisable for the unique way she "suspends" materials to create the illusion that they are floating within the frame or space. This unique practice allows her to create three-dimensional wall-based works which have ephemeral and sculptural qualities. Working predominantly with organic and found materials - typically including dried flower petals, clock components and book extracts - these artworks allude to the suspension of time and fleetingness of wonder.
These works are represented internationally by Les Galeries Bartoux. Please contact the gallery to enquire about available works.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How are the dried petals preserved?
The petals in these works are dried and preserved using UV protective resin. These works are also glazed with UV protective, anti-reflective glass.
What petals are used in these works?
Floral art works are created using dried petals from various flowers - predominantly rose, calendula, hydrangea, cornflower and delphinium petals. These are sourced from UK flower farms in Shropshire and Sussex. Eucalyptus and Ruscus leaves also feature in many of the artworks.
How are the butterflies sourced?
Any butterflies or moths used in the artworks are sourced from vintage and antique collections, as well as natural death butterflies from UK butterfly houses - they often bare marks and scars from their previous lives. No butterflies are bred or caught for these artworks.
Where do you get the watch and clock parts from?
Watch and clock parts are recycled from used clocks and watches as well as factory seconds - they often show signs of rust and wear, which point to the unique history of the material itself.
How are the artworks presented?
Each piece is framed with a deep white wood frame, and is glazed with anti-reflective glass.
