Deborah Halpern

Autumn Wind, 2015

Glass, fibreglass, steel, aluminium
58 x 58 x 30 cm

Gallery price $ 15,000

With a remarkable career that spans almost forty years, Deborah Halpern is one of Australia’s most respected and much-loved artists. Best known for her public sculptures in colourful mosaic, Halpern’s diverse artistic practice also includes ceramics, working with hot glass and print-making. Halpern’s most famous sculpture is undoubtedly her monumental work ‘Angel’ that was commissioned by the National Gallery of Victoria to stand majestically along St Kilda Road. Now residing at Birrarung Marr on the banks of the Yarra, beside Federation Square, ‘Angel’ is considered a major landmark in Melbourne, and an adored work of public art.

Through the success of ‘Angel’, and efforts of fundraising Halpern was able to donate $100,000 to the Hunger Project, a not for profit organisation that is committed to ending chronic, persistent hunger on the planet in our lifetime. Today Halpern continues to use her practice as a forum to invest in a number of organizations including Maiti Nepal, an organization committed to rescuing and rehabilitating women and girls who are survivors of child trafficking, and Animals Asia, an organization committed to saving moon bears from bear-bile farming in Asia.

‘Through the Forest’ – her latest body of work – reveals Halpern’s inspiration from Picasso and Gaudi, yet consistently reflects this talented artist’s ability to delight, surprise and inspire
