Clara Hali is an eminent sculptor working principally in bronze. Her sculpture predominantly explores themes concerning the strengths and weaknesses of the human form. Hali’s most recent figurative works are engaged in the practice of yoga, reflecting a desire to find balance and spirituality. Other more abstract work explores the figure as a metaphor for landscape. The hips are sensuous and strong clusters of boulders and cubist torsos are reminiscent of spectacular rock escarpments.
Clara studied sculpture at the National Art School in Sydney and has been an influential lecturer in sculpture since 1988. She has exhibited extensively and her work is represented in collections in Australia and internationally.
