Ane Christensen

Ane Christensen makes contemporary vessels and wall pieces in metal. Having worked in silver for many years, Christensen made the shift to copper, steel and brass, enabling her to be more ambitious with the scale of her work, which is becoming increasingly abstract. 

Each of Christensenís pieces begins as a simple spun form or flat sheet of metal. The early process is intuitive and very material based and both material and idea are challenged through deconstruction, interruption and reconstruction. She is inspired by structures and the spaces within and around them, often drawn to something very simple and slightly incomplete like a damaged spider web, an unfinished building or a crumbling fence. That slight imperfection in a pattern or a structure is magical to her and when translated into metalwork, makes the piece come to life.
