Anna Korver is currently based in Taranaki, New Zealand. She has been a full time professional sculptor since completed a BFA in sculpture from the University of Canterbury in 2003. Korver works nationally and internationally on exhibition work and private and public commissions. She has been selected in the Wallace awards twice, invited to exhibit work in many large scale outdoor sculpture exhibitions including Brick Bay sculpture Trail and Tai Tapu sculpture garden and has attended more than 60 national and international sculpture symposiums.
Korver’s works are feminine in their identity and perspective, inviting intimacy and personal connection. The forms are minimalist and strive to reflect the inner self onto the outer surface. Her work has always come from an internal place, reflecting on the current situation or experience. The fundamental concepts generally revolve around the defense and protection of women but often from a subtle, gentle place. They question and challenge traditional feminine roles, offering a different kind of strength where the masculine and feminine sides are in balance and delicate, fragility is recognised instead of seen as a weakness, reflecting on feminism’s advocacy for equality for both genders.
