Harrie Fasher: Studies in bronze and steel -  - Darlinghurst - NSW
A recipient of the Helen Lempriere Scholarship in 2017, Harrie Fasher is an Australian artist engaged in sculpture and drawing. Working from Oberon, NSW, her studio is a hive of activity, producing large scale steel sculptures that embody tension and movement. Fasher utilises both abstraction and figurative form, predominately the horse, to convey her message. Working with steel as her primary medium, the sculptures are three dimensional drawings that illicit an emotional response from the viewer. The mental and physical power of the horse is core to Fasher’s work, and belies her history as an equestrian athlete. Her sculptures display an innate knowledge of the physical and gestural nuances of the horse, and the unique bond between horse and human. Fasher has work in public and private collections both within Australia and internationally. She has an extensive exhibition history, including a seminal sculpture central to the National Museum of Australia’s Spirited: Australia’s Horse Story exhibition in 2015. Critical acclaim, appointment to the National Art School’s teaching staff, and numerous scholarships and residencies reiterate the strength and vitality of Fasher’s work and the continued development of her creative practice.
