Garrison’s use of minimal detail on the eyes of his women make a powerful character. His use of texture on the stone is unique to his style. There are many copies of his work, but you can tell the originals by this trait.
A real treat here in Wimbledon. At Cannizaro Park a superb open-air exhibition of Zimbabwean sculpture. There were many pieces, large and small, and a wide variety of different stone used in imaginative ways. And, overall, a real sense of Africa, linked to a long artistic tradition.
I was told that many of the sculptors had been trained within their own families: a father, an uncle, a grandfather, passing on the old skills.
