about the exhibition
Anna Eggert is a prolific artist who continues to explore new materials and processes. In her most recent work, Anna explores how hidden forces such as light and sound waves, gravity and radiation impact on our physical world. The painted and woven surfaces of Anna’s wall pieces and sculptural works capture the turmoil of these energies that surround us. The works incorporate stainless steel mesh, embroidery hoops, wire and other found objects such as shovels, picks and axe handles forming semi-transparent, perforated works that possess a dynamic visual energy.
Anna Eggert completed her Bachelor of Visual Arts at the Canberra School of Art in 1990 and since then she has been a finalist in the Wynne Prize Exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW, National Sculpture Prize at the National Gallery of Australia, Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize and Alice Springs Art Prize. She has been awarded the Waverley Art Prize for Sculpture and, twice, the People’s Choice Award for the McClelland Sculpture Award. Anna’s work is represented in the collections of the Canberra Museum and Gallery, Alice Springs Art Foundation, Macquarie University, Victorian Arts Centre and Deakin University.
