Annie Ward’s practice encompasses two distinct ways of making: painting and sculptural constructions using paper and altered books.
She slips effortlessly between her two areas of expertise finding that they feed off each other. Both her painting and her 3D work are informed by personal memory, history and texts that she has read. In fact she uses text extensively in her objects.
She addresses the historic role of women as homemakers, widely in her work, recognising her position in a long line of daughters, mothers and grandmothers handing on advice, wisdom and ways of doing things and subtly observing how little has really changed.
