Anna Carey is an Australia artist currently living and working in Los Angeles. Interested in the recuperation of memory while experiencing transient vernacular iconic architecture so suited to the mediums of photography and model making.
By conflating the real with memory and imagination she constructs miniature models of vernacular architecture, documenting these models with the camera and then displaying the resulting photographs. The camera lens magnifies the model with all its imperfections and reminds the viewer that the photograph has been constructed with a miniature materialized object.
In turn this creates a disorientating experience for the viewers and opens up a space for one to pause and reflect on their own experiences embedded within the familiar spaces.
Anna graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Media majoring in Fine Art with Honours (first class) from Queensland College of Art and is currently undertaking her Doctorate with QCA.
