Sam Harrison: Paper and Sculpture - Art Collector

Sam Harrison, Untitled Figure Study III (detail), 2017. Bronze, 40 x 29 x 20cm. Courtesy of the artist and Fox Jensen Gallery, Auckland.

Sam Harrison initiates making with an enviable capacity to describe. But what makes his work is his distrust of that facility and the knowledge that this practice in both drawing and sculpting demand the regular disassembling of the parts. The inks are fast. Just a few strokes and yet they carry all the critical information that Harrison has accumulated in his dedicated drawing process. The sculptures too carry this energy - they are conceived slowly and made quickly. Harrison's observations of the human form go beyond the skin and sinew.
