Anne F. Crumpacker leans to the light and elevates interiors with crosscut bamboo luminaries. A selection of these illuminating sculptures are on exhibit at The Joinery’s downtown showroom through May 12th, 2019.
Each piece Anne creates is a microcosm and metaphor for life, the interconnection of all things. She strives to expose the inner beauty of bamboo and share her innermost thoughts with audiences. Patterns and rhythms emerge, revealing the interconnection of forces within nature, from microscopic life to wave movement. Interconnectedness is the source, the revelation, and the energy she seeks to express in all of her work.
Japanese aesthetics deeply influence this artist. She reflects on minimal design, the simplicity and clarity of expression, the close connection to nature through the bamboo, and the serenity and tranquility she experiences when working with her hands. It is her meditation and she is in the flow. This has become the core of her practice she simply cannot do without.
