Taking organic or biological forms as a starting point, Ann Coomber gradually develops, simplifies, and abstracts, imbuing the emerging sculpture with meaning – a story, remembrance, question, experience, or emotion. She is fascinated by the intimate relationship between First Nation peoples and the natural world: how abstract forms and natural objects can contain or embody complex narratives, ideas, and personal or collective memories in these cultures.
Ann explores most of her ideas through the medium of stone carving, although she also works in wood. Her sculptures are highly tactile and have a timeless quality that looks beautiful in both contemporary and traditional environments.
