Cuisine cartoonist, and award-winning illustrator and ceramicist Anna Crichton, traveled to Varanasi, India in 2017 to explore the sculptural potential of bead-and-thread embroidery and woodblock carving – and to find an abstract way of telling stories. Her exhibition, Ragpicker at 4am, is at the TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre in the Pah Homestead, Auckland from 18 September-11 November 2018.
