Just arrived and unpacked. Very happy to have this in our gallery, ‘The Banquet’ reminds us just how powerful polychromed, carved sculpture can be – just think of the ancient Egyptians. Of course I shot this rather hurriedly in B&W! Still Ana Maria – being Brazilian – has her own, highly distinctive cultural references. Without being biased, I think this show (at 4 venues across the City), will be a knockout and an artist whose work is ready for critical revision.
