The Strand Gallery is delighted to announce our upcoming exhibition Time is Now, by London based artist Anna Masters, generously supported by Arts Council England. It will showcase ambitious new works and bold developments in the artist’s practice as she investigates three-dimensional form and large-scale interventions.
Masters is a mixed-media artist, creating wall-based works and site-specific installations. Her intricate pieces take inspiration from the natural world focusing particularly on plants and insects, as she works primarily with organic material and found objects.
Light, pattern and texture are integral subjects within the works, as regular themes of time and transcience are evident. The works toy with the idea of capturing a perfect, inexplicable moment, and sensitively question our cultural resistance to time and change, and the paradox of its inevitability.
Anna graduated in 2005 from Staffordshire University with a First Class Honours Degree in Fine Art. Since then, she has exhibited extensively in London and across the UK. She is regularly involved with public art projects and has contributed to: Elephant Parade (2010 – 2013-14), Jungle City Edinburgh (2011), The Big Faberge Egg Hunt (2012) and the City of London Festival (2012).
Time Is Now will be exhibited at The Strand Gallery from the 21st – 26th October 2014.
