Maria Ansell's work investigates narratives surrounding people, places and objects. For Maria's final year at university she has worked on two series: 'Women who' is an investigation in to relationships with key female figures in her life where she reflects on her idea of self and womanhood and how both have been shaped before she was conscious of the implications of her gender. 'Metal Men' is an exploration in to the toy soldier and war gaming industry, looking at people within the community and the human compulsion to play and collect whilst confronting some of the stigmas associated with the hobby. Maria's interest stems from her families long running involvement in the games industry and manufacturing of metal miniatures.
