Anja Marais


Anja Marais, who holds a degree in Sculpture from the University of South Africa, has shown in many one-person and group shows in Florida and New York. Her work explores nostalgia, paradox and enigma through her chosen subject matter: the female body and how women survived and lived through generations of hardship. She writes, “The subject becomes the outlines of my mother washing dishes, the shadow of my grandmother watering flowers. Lost illusions lurk in the shadows of my childhood memories…”
