About Ana Duncan

Ana Duncan was born in Dublin, Ireland. She works primarily in bronze and ceramic from her studio in Churchtown. Though the female figure has provided much inspiration for her work, forms in the natural world have inspired a recent body of work. Amongst her main influences are; the abstraction of Henry Moore, the voluminous figures of Fernando Botero, Barbara Hepworth’s modernist work, the simplicity of Brancusi and the mysterious sculptures of Juan Munoz.
She completed two large scale public commissions in Suzhou, China in 2018. In 2015 she was invited to participate in a Sculpture Symposium in the United States, where she completed a 2.5m high Stainless-Steel Public Sculpture which was sited at the entrance to Mine Falls Park, Nashua, New Hampshire. Other public commissions include a life size Mother and Child for Tallaght Hospital, Dublin.
Her work is represented in the collections of the Office of Public Works, Department of Finance and Personnel, Northern Ireland, Morrison Hotel, Tannery Restaurant and several other private collections in Ireland USA, UK, Sweden, Spain and Portugal.
Ana was a joint exhibition Coordinator of Sculpture in Context, one of Ireland’s largest outdoor exhibitions from 2000 to 2013.
