New work by sculptor Anna Gillespie.


Over the last 10 years Anna Gillespie has attempted through her work to recapture a feeling of immersion in nature, often employing beech nuts, acorn cups, twigs, galls – with these natural found objects then cast into bronze.  The act of gathering each autumn the artist considered a meditation; on the beauty of nature and our human place within it.  She describes it as humbling, viscerally realising the way in which we humans are just another mass product of nature – all fundamentally the same and yet no two alike.

Recent visits to Africa and America have somewhat shifted her focus to the way in which humans are influenced by the man-made environment and to the way in which we interact with the planet as a species.  Whereas most work using organic materials depicted solitary figures, often in a meditative or perhaps even spiritual stance, the new work favours groups, walking or standing.  Whilst it may appear to draw on current events, Gillespie is also seeking to draw a parallel with the historical experience of people and their movements across the surface of the Earth through time.

In her organic work the individual was subsumed by the experience of melding with nature and in simply being another beautiful product of it.  Her new sculpture deals with the question of what it takes to recognise an individual as an individual, both in terms of being part of a mass of humanity and in the face of passing time.
