Ann Carrington

The use of discarded, found and multiples of objects is a fundamental element of British artist Ann Carrington’s art. Knives, forks and spoons, barbed wire, pins and paintbrushes come with their own readymade histories and associations which can be unraveled and analyzed if rearranged, distorted or realigned to give them new meaning as sculpture. Carrington goes to incredible lengths to breath extraordinary new life into every day, ordinary items.

Carrington’s work can be found in museum collections, the world over.
