The Lighthouses

Anna Korver’s ‘The Lighthouses’ is a triptych which combines elements of architecture with the traditional dress of Saudi women. Her work explores the connection that people have to a place, and how this becomes integrated into the view of the self. ‘The Lighthouses’ explore the unique beauty and strength of the feminine perspective through abstract forms. The purpose of the lighthouse is protection and safety, and the artist’s intention with this symbol is to speak to the importance of the feeling of home.

Anna Korver

New Zealand

Anna Korver (b. 1980) currently divides her time between her home in New Plymouth, New Zealand and overseas where she works nationally and internationally on exhibition work and private and public commissions. She has been a full-time professional sculptor since completing a BFA in Sculpture from the University of Canterbury (2003), with her recent works divided into several specific series where the human experience is described from different perspectives both literal and metaphorical; internalized and externalized. Her work explores deconstruction and reconstruction of the self via the symbolism of architecture, combining a balance of contemporary and traditional sculpting processes and merging between realism and surrealism.

Korver’s work has been selected in the Wallace Awards twice (2016, 2018), exhibited in many large-scale outdoor sculpture exhibitions including Brick Bay Sculpture Trail, Auckland, New Zealand and Tai Tapu Sculpture Garden, Tai Tapu, New Zealand and has attended more than 65 national and international sculpture symposiums.
