About Ann

Ann Gadd

The "sheep series" came about as a wry look at the corporate world and the emphasis we place on achievement, which often, in the greater scheme of things becomes fairly meaningless.
In 2006 Ann started her Ewe series of works, which propelled her into local and global recognition. Sheep in their inane conformist lifestyle have much to mirror to us about the human condition.
[0x1]Eat, sleep, shit, toil, die for a purpose that remains beyond their (and our) deeper understanding. Like sheep we seldom stop to question our life, its purpose and the validity of what we do. Struggling to achieve a stable patch for ourselves and yet being ever threatened by the inevitable tumble downhill, in the repetitive conformism of our lives, sheep become icons for our own insanity. From their lofty phallic heights, (to which we in a post paternalistic male dominated society have raised them), sheep set themselves up for an inevitable fall.
Through Ewe, Ann examines the life of you the observer, and hopes, through humour, to get ewe/you the viewer, to question why you do what you do and push you to challenge your beliefs and understanding of reality.

In addition, Ann is a published writer, journalist, teacher and facilitator of Art &workshops targeting corporate, domestic and educational target markets.

"I believe we start by learning to express ourselves creatively in the physical form. If we pursue this passion with courage, diligence and discipline, we come to the realization that we are the canvas: - and as such, are both the creator and the creation. Creativity then becomes who we are, not just what we hang on the wall.[0x1] - Ann Gadd
