Tete (My Aunt)
This sculpture cleverly manages to combine a real African feel with the modern style typical of contemporary Zimbabwean sculpture. The facial features are sharply defined using a rasp, and full lips give the face a wonderfully warm expression.
Garison favours springstone, a particularly hard type of serpentine stone, as a sculpture medium. He combines different textures and finishes in the rough stone.
This elegant piece is finished with a rasp, so the surface of the face and neck is covered in small striations. Garison's technique stops half way through the standard Zimbabwean sculpture process.
