Silent Conversation sculpture

After a fall ended her professional equestrian career, Harrie Fasher studied sculpture at National Art School in Sydney. Fasher works intuitively, bending and welding steel rod to make her works, which often feature horses. 'I tried to avoid it, but it is a part of who I am,' she says. 'I think my spirit is that of a horse, which is why it made sense to tell a narrative with the horse's form. The horse is a symbol of power and strength and elegance, but it's also fragile. That’s the juxtaposition I explore in my sculpture.'
