About

The Rosicrucian Society, or Please Tell Me My Future by Ann Chisholm. Ink and paper on board 9 x 18 1/2 x 2 in This work consists of 2 pieces that are each 9 x 9 x 2 inches. With a blue background, and hundreds of small paper circles individually punched from old paper and placed on the board. Communication or communicating is a theme in Ann Chisholm's work, especially in the collages. She uses words, numbers, and symbols to give visual hints. Morse Code is an important element in many of her pieces. Morse Code’s geometric shapes add beauty to the work, but it is also a universal way of communicating and gives the viewer something to decipher. What Ann is trying to convey in a collage may be encrypted or may be nonsense. In many ways Ann Chisholm's work is about the process. She has an idea and then gives herself specific tasks to complete. Once the tasks are complete, the piece is finished. This way of working is particularly true with Ann's striped paintings that are created in multiples using several layers of ink that is dragged across each canvas which allows for unplanned variations and the futility of the effort lend to the meaning of the work. The hope is that the viewer will have a contemplative experience.
