Ana Rosa Hopkins

Ana Rosa Hopkins is an Argentinian-born British artist based in Manchester. She completed her PhD by Practice in 2016 which examined back-story in contemporary sculptural practice exploring the relationship between an artwork and its back-story and how this is expressed through materials. Her work has been exhibited in the UK and internationally in Spain, Portugal, Germany, Holland, Finland, China and Brazil.

Ana works across a range of media including sculpture, installation, photography and drawing. She has a fascination with the emotional, symbolic and metaphorical dimensions of materials and objects and the histories and narratives which surround them. The back-story narrative gives her work a storied content which engages the viewer and compels them to look again. Using a process of inclusion and incorporation to embed objects in crystal glass, her poetic sculptures move towards a new possibility for glass.
