Garrison is one of the best ‘torso’ sculptors in Zimbabwe today. The torso’s are stylised and angular on the hips. This particular model is very popular, showing his skill in capturing movement and grace in stone.
I’ve seen the previous two ZimSculpt exhibitions and, judging by the preview photographs, this year’s collection has a much more modernistic cast, somewhat whimsical in several of its pieces. Earlier exhibitions were “heavier,” always a problem with stone; several of this year’s major pieces are very graceful, more stylistic, and probably more attractive to a Western audience.
