Anne Marie Rawlinson

Statement

‘Rawlinson is not out ot make pretty scenes,
but she manages to fling together assemblage works
of poetic electricity.”
(Josef Woodard, Los Angeles Times writer and art critic)

Using found objects to create sculptures brings resources to my disposition that are as varied as the material realm of the world we live in; they provide an interesting mirror of our time and society. My work is frequently narrative or symbolic and deals with social and spiritual issues.
