New Zealand-born Anna Sew Hoy is an interdisciplinary visual artist whose practice is rooted in ceramics, but also includes works on paper, soft sculpture, installation, photography and a myriad of other media. Playful and uncanny, she navigates between figurative and abstract imagery. She engages the modernist avant-garde’s conflicting obsessions with primitivism and the “purity” of sculpture.
