SCULPTURE IN CONTEXT 2023 CATALOGUE REFERENCE No 5
Over the years I have come to recognise Ana’s sculpture and I find her work to be attractive but this was somewhat different to what I have seen before (maybe because it is not bronze).
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.
