Anne Curry Anne discovered the power of sculpture while working for a doctorate in Egyptology at Oxford University. “I see in the sculpture of Ancient Egypt the perfect combination of material, line, volume and tension.” Clean lines and inner energy are the fundamental principles of her work.
Anne remains fascinated by the development of natural forms and their patterns. The curves, spirals of growth, the unfolding of leaves and flowers, the bursting of seed pods all imply controlled movement, a disciplined and mathematical progression, but all displaying an immense internal energy.
This close observation is at the core of Anne’s monumental sculpture,combined with clean lines and pared down detail. The pieces she creates have taken shape in her mind’s eye over a period of months, often years.
Her garden sculptures have been exhibited at Newby Hall in Yorkshire, Levens Hall in Cumbria, Sir Harold Hillier Gardens in Hampshire, Painswick Rococo Gardens in Gloucestershire, Burghley House Sculpture Garden in Lincolnshire, West Lavington Manor in Wiltshire, at the Duin and Kruidberg Estate in Santpoort in the Netherland and at The Royal Meeting Ascot , 2018 2019
