Ann Vores has worked in a variety of creative media -- for this online gallery she has chosen to present a sampling of her photographic images and furniture pieces.
Anns landscape and nature images are often quite interpretive -- she views her subject based more upon their shape, texture and color, transforming them beyond a straight pictorial reproduction.
With her furniture, Her willow pieces are very free form and so closely tied to the material used in construction, that the pieces feel as if they have grown naturally into shapes that also serve as functional furniture.
With her music benches, stools and end tables, Ann's approach can be described as truly "whimsical". She ncorporates her painting and upholstery background to create pieces that are as much sculpture, as functional. Her work becomes a canvas carried to an extra dimension such as when she transforms her stool and table feet into ballerina slippers, or spike heels.
Anns work has been exhibited at the Anderson Ranch Arts Centers Patton Gallery in Snowmass, CO, and many of them (each one unique) have found their way into homes as both functional furnitureand conversation pieces.
