South Australian artist Annalise Rees graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Art with Honours from the Adelaide Central School of Art in 2004. She has exhibited in numerous group exhibitions in Adelaide, and held her first solo exhibition in 2005. Annalise uses drawing and sculpture to create installations which investigate ideas about space and place. Her wire drawings incorporating light and shadow create new spaces and environments; everyday motifs such as street directories and dressmaking patterns are used to investigate and map social and cultural attitudes towards the familiar and sometimes banal ritual of everyday life. Following from her residency at Sanskriti Kendra in New Delhi, India, last year, Annalise intends to use her time in the quintessentially Australian township of Hill End to reflect upon her ideas about her place within the Australian environment and to create drawing and installation site-specific works.
