CAPTIVE BY ANA DUNCAN – SCULPTURE IN CONTEXT 2014
Sculpture by Ana Duncan – Photographed in the Botanic Gardens in Dublin in September 2014
Over the years I have come to recognise Ana’s sculpture and I find her work to be attractive.
This brings to mind some recent aggressive actions towards women in Ireland and the UK
Ana Duncan was born in Dublin. She works primarily in bronze and ceramic from her studio in Churchtown. Though the female figure has been a subject of focus, a recent body of work was inspired by patterns and forms in the natural world. Her main influences are the work of Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Botero, Picasso, F.E McWilliam, among others, and the simplicity of Brancusi.
