Figure Study Drawing #8, 2016
500mm x 670mm
Framed, charcoal on paper
 

These figure study drawings come from a series developed by the artist when undertaking his Bathing Figure for the Presence exhibition. Placing his figure on the cast boulder he expressivly sketched her form in the round.


Sam Harrison is a Christchurch sculptor whose work depends on the scrutiny of the human figure. Such a practice needs to be cognisant and respectful of art history’s lengthy enquiry into the human form and yet it ought to transcend the conceptual aridity of mere formal observation by add ing an emotional and psychological candour. Harrison’s work is extremely rare in the manner in which it manages this challenge. Harrison’s capacity to ‘make’ is exceptional. When married with the sensitivity and acuity of his looking, he is capable of delivering works that are freed of sentimentality but remain charged with emotion and sincerity. Harrison has won major commissions, both public and private in Australia and his work is also held in the National Gallery of Australia collection.
