‘Union’ is Anna Church’s exploration of coupledom as inspired by the words of Anaiis Nin; “We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.” The covering of creepers and vines in this piece represents growth, and the dual candle-sconces are a metaphor for the holding of flames for one another. As such it depicts the evolution needed of a relationship from its starry-eyed beginnings to the more mature, balanced and ultimately rewarding, state of being in true partnership together.
