About Anna Korver

Anna Korver is an established award winning New Zealand artist with a BFA in sculpture from the University of Canterbury. Korver works nationally and internationally, exhibiting, attending symposiums and completing commissions. Korver`s works are feminine in their identity and perspective, the fundamental concepts and feeling of the works inviting intimacy and personal connection. The forms conceal complex ideas about feminine roles and the projection of the inner self thru the outer form. Often abstracted and minimalist, they challenge what is traditionally female and deconstruct the social power relationships within these roles. Current works are more tightly tied to the construction of industry and technology which is seen as a male domain compared to the traditionally feminine practice of hand crafts. Korver is the co-director of the Korver Molloy Gallery and sculpture trail, an executive member of the Te Kupenga stone sculpture society and a trustee on the board of Eco Artists New Zealand.

Customer comment on 'Forest fairy (figurative bronze Dancer Contemporary statue statuette)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Dear Peter (ArtParkS), Plamen (artist) Just today the package with the sculpture ”Forest Fairy” has arrived. Safe, perfectly packed. I must say “Forest Fairy” is really beautiful, great! I like her very much, her hands, her emotional dance, feelings hidden in her body. Thank you for filling my home with beauty. I wish you both a lot of enthusiasm for marvellous work you do.
