Charlotte Fisher

b. 1959

Charlotte Fisher was born in Whangarei and graduated from the University of Auckland, Elam School of Fine arts with a BFA in 1989. There Fisher was influenced by lecturers Greer Twiss and Christine Hellyar.

In 1998 the Whangarei Art Museum mounted a survey exhibition of her work. The significant piece 'Arc,' completed in 2004, was part of 'Sculpture 2001,' a project aimed at installing eight new sculptures in the Auckland Domain grounds.

Fisher's sculpture develops organic, abstract forms through the use of bought, salvaged or donated demolition or recycled wood in combination with found natural objects.
