Visual transformation and optical illusion are the key elements of Anah Dunsheath’s practice. Her works feature pronounced perspective and an often paradoxical relationship between 3-dimensional space and 2-dimensional surface.

Dunsheath is known as an ‘urban’ artist. Her large acrylic paintings are generally set in the streets of Auckland, however other theme  (relating to popular culture) are present in each series. The works are edgy with strong form and bold colour, with human interaction an essential component. These works create a narrative the viewer is invited to complete.

Dunsheath’s sculptures are made in the basic medium of mirror finish stainless steel with an emphasis on illusion. Other mediums included in her works are acrylic, LED lights, etch primer, and lacquer paint. Her sculptures range from free standing works to site specific installations.
