Anna Higgins’ image-based practice incorporates found archival and contemporary material that is abstracted and re-contextualized through methods of collage, painting and film photography to form new perspectives and poetic interpretations. Anna’s work explores the nature of images and how the mind makes sense of visual information that is not fully formed.
Anna completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) at the Victorian College of the Arts (2013) and a Graduate Diploma of Museum Studies at Deakin University (2016). She is currently undertaking a Masters of Fine Arts at The Royal Academy Schools, London.
