Annie Ward

Artist, Maker

My art practice goes hand in hand with genealogical research into the female line of my family tree. Taking the notion of the past informing the present, I also research historic texts as an impetus to developing pieces which build layer by layer, often scraping or sanding back to reveal or erase elements of previous applications. With an emphasis on materiality, process and repetition, I create a broad spectrum of work from drawings and paintings to paper objects and installations.
