Shyam SelvaduraiDeliverance is mesmerizing and I felt taken beyond language and words to feelings and sensual impressions – which is where work of this quality and imagination does take the viewer. … The subject of the environment is a well travelled path but her work stands out because she combines her environmental concerns with a truly gifted use of colour, texture, materials and form, bringing a complexity and depth to Deliverance.

Smriti Daniels - The Sunday TimesIn recent years Anoma’s work has become increasingly interactive. Rooted in her conviction that all humans are stakeholders in the planet’s future she would like to see this exhibition instigate more than one conversation. While segments are interactive she has also planned message boards on which the viewers can dialogue with each other.
