Anne Gibbs’ artistic practice is a fusion of influences stemming from the still life painting genre, cabinets of curiosities and collage. Her work is concerned with examining the selection and arrangement of objects and exploring the use of colour in her practice. Experimenting with materials is of great interest to her, making small-scale objects in bone china occasionally displayed with mixed media components. Anne collects natural materials and man-made objects from a wide range of sources, which are then transformed, altered and restaged. These objects fuel an interest in the relationships between disharmony and ambiguity on the one hand; stillness and calm on the other.
