Angus Fisher

b. 1983

Angus Fisher is a Sydney based artist that specialises in printmaking and drawing, working primarily in pen and ink and copper plate etching. Known for his precise and intricate observations of the natural world, Fisher’s practice not only investigates the diversity of ecology through his subjects, but the evolving attitudes, relationships and philosophical interpretations of humankind to the wider natural world. In 2018, Fisher presented a folio consisting of 24 editioned hand-coloured etchings titled ‘Birds of New Holland’ as a contemporary reference and accompaniment to the early encyclopaedic natural history illustrations of J.W. Lewin.

Fisher has been a finalist in several awards such as the Geelong Print Award; the Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize; and the Mission to Seafarers Maritime Art Prize. He has be included in group exhibitions at the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney and Dubbo Regional Gallery, as well as internationally in Taiwan, Scotland and Canada, and his work is in the collection of Australian institutions such as the Art Gallery of NSW, the National Gallery of Australia and the State Library of NSW. Fisher was the recipient of the National Art School Onslow Storrier Studio Residency at La Cité International des Arts, Paris in 2019 as well as the Aboriginal Arts Centre Internship Award in 2011; Megalo Print Workshop Residency in 2018; Paper Planes Emerging Talent Award in 2010; and Winner of the Derivan Printmaking Award in 2010.
