Anna Gillespie – New Works – Exhibition 7 April – 5 May 2018
In this solo exhibition, Bath-based sculptor Anna Gillespie launches new works in plaster.
Anna is exploring a more alienated and urban human experience than in her previous work, the Gathering Project, which used found tree materials.
The new figurative work deals with themes which include loss, the feminine and the masculine, and the process of depicting human reality through the sculptural form.
Anna Gillespie was born in Surrey in 1964. She studied Philosophy, Politics, Economics at Wadham College, Oxford and then International Relations at the London School of Economics.
In 1988 Anna returned to sculpture, taking a City and Guilds in Stone Masonry and Carving in Bath before going to the Centro d’Arte, Verrocchio, Italy to work as studio assistant to sculptor, Nigel Konstam. Anna then completed an MA in Fine and Media Arts in Cheltenham.
Anna has work in the collections of The Prudential, Burghley House Sculpture Park, The Somerset Museum, Museo Arte Contemporanea Sicilia, Bodrum Sculpture Park Turkey and also in private collections throughout America, the Middle East and Europe.
