Photo Courtsey of Brenda Ladd
Ann Alva Wieding has always been captivated by the natural world and the patterns that emanate from it. Fractals, symmetry, light, color and composition do an intimate dance that she loves to observe. She strives to capture and display the visual drama that is the interplay between these elements in the still image. She focuses her lens on a moment in time where the light emanating from the Sun and the Moon may never be the same again.
Rather than presenting a factual reality with her collage work, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination. Her photos are an investigation into representations of (seemingly) concrete element of light as well as depictions and ideas that can only be realized in photography. With Plato’s allegory of the cave in mind, she makes work that deals with the documentation of celestial events and the question of how they can be presented.
By juxtaposing photography and collage the artist hopes to exam the realm of dark landscapes and the questions that science, religion, magic and intuition pose in her mind. This results in the fact that the artist can easily imagine an own interpretation without being hindered by the historical reality. By examining the ambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, she tries to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations.
Her works establish a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence. Ann currently lives and works in Austin.
