Ann Christopher
b. 1947, Watford, England


Ann Christopher is a British abstract sculptor working primarily in cast bronze, stainless steel, silver, and fabricated corten. Her enigmatic, non-figurative sculptures evoke modern industrial landscapes, ancient monoliths, and natural rock formations. She describes her practice as “a visual diary of my physical and emotional life." Christopher has won numerous awards throughout her career, including the Otto Beit Medal of Sculpture of Outstanding Merit (1997), the Silver Medal for Sculpture of Outstanding Merit by the Royal Society of British Sculptors (1994), the Peter Stuyvesant Award (1971), and first place in the Harrison-Cowley Sculpture Competition (1968). She was inaugurated as a member of the Royal Academy in 1980, and in 1989 she was elected to be a Royal Academician, one of eighty practicing artists who help guide the Royal Academy of Arts in London. In 1992, she became a Fellow of the Royal Society of British Sculptors. The University of Bristol, the City of Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, the Chantrey Bequest, and the Contemporary Art Society have all acquired her work. Christopher lives and works near Bath, England.
