Clara Hali

Sculptural Transformations
16 Jan - 16 Feb

» View exhibition

Sydney sculptor CLARA HALI creates bold female figures in bronze, stone and wood. Based on the female form, these sculptures are alive with energy. She constructs the female figure using a cubist ethos, piecing together figurative and abstract planes. The angular surfaces of HALI's sculptures invigorate the female form with physical and historical presence.
