About the work

Ann Churchill started her automatic drawings in 1965. She views the inspiration for her works as unknowable, and so continues exploring…

About the artist:

Born 1944 London, Ann Churchill lives and works in Bath.

Churchill is a self-taught artist and maker whose output encompasses drawing, painting, knitting, batik and beading. Churchill views her practice as a meditative process that supports her own inner, spiritual journey. Her practice developed during the 1960s through daily black and white automatic drawings. During the 1970s Churchill’s process grew to encompass vibrantly coloured inks, creating complex works on paper which combine swirling, interlacing lines and forms with passages of labyrinthine pattern. Her most recent works evoke the natural world, incorporating earthly forms, invented landscapes and sacred imagery. Made without intention or plan, the works unfold and develop automatically through the intricate and subtle interplay between the hand and the unconscious.

Selected exhibitions include Not Without My Ghosts: The Artist As Medium, Drawing Room, London (2020); Ann Churchill: Works on Paper: 1974-78, curated by Elizabeth Neilson, Director of the Zabludowicz Collection, Richard Saltoun Gallery, London (2019); and GRANDINE, London (2018).

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
