Nicholas Hanisch is a sculptural installation artist graduating as a scholarship recipient at Adelaide Central School of Art. Hanisch’s ongoing practice has involved a diverse and continual exploration of mediums, conceptual themes and collaborations. His recent body of work investigates creation narratives within the field of figurative sculpture. In this series, the materiality of the making continually informed the outcomes and tested ways in which to generate affectual responses in the audience. Hanisch’s sculptural forms are informed by the history of figurative sculpture, whilst celebrating the humour, the horror, the happenstance, and the sheer endeavour of creation. Previously Hanisch has attended the New York Studio School, practiced and exhibited in Berlin, participated in residencies across India, and exhibited as part of The Art Gallery of South Australia collection.
