27 March - 28 June 2020

In this exhibition Portland-based artist Harrie Fasher presents explorations in concrete, steel and bronze. Renown for her large three-dimensional steel line structures, the addition of concrete and bronze depict mass and weight. The sculptures are the response Fasher made after touring historical WWI battlefields in France and Belgium in 2017. Like the materials, the subject matter is heavy and cumbersome; the horror of WWI is conveyed leaving the viewer confronted by the reality of war.
Harrie Fasher is represented by King Street Gallery on William, Sydney.
