“The Horse Walks” examines notions of movement within a still sculptural object. It’s steel rod construction captures the energy of a line sketch into three dimensions. The weight and physicality of a life size horse is juxtaposed with the delicacy of a line drawing.
Harrie Fasher’s energy for life is evident in her work. Since graduating with Honours from NAS 2011 she has produced a solo exhibition (Maunsell Wicks Gallery), won the Major prize at Lake Light Sculpture Exhibition, Jindabyne and secured an Art Start grant from the Australian Arts Council. Her depictions of the horse portray an intimate connection, displayed through anatomical accuracy, whimsy and emotion.
