Angus Fisher‘s Parsley Bay is currently on show at the National Art School as part of the recently opened Dobell Drawing Prize #23, in which Fisher is a finalist.

The Dobell Drawing Prize #23 is an unparalleled celebration of drawing technique and innovation. Presented by the National Art School in partnership with the Sir William Dobell Art Foundation, the biennial prize explores the enduring importance of drawing within contemporary art practice.

Fisher’s chosen work, Parsley Bay, is one of a number of large charcoal drawings completed during lockdown that feature local bush land scenes along the Hawkesbury river, where Fisher lives and works. Parsley Bay was chosen alongside 63 other works from 1062 entries by judges Catherine O’Donnell, Paula Latos-Valier and Katrina Cashman.

The Dobell Drawing Prize continues at the National Art School until 10 June 2023.
