Nic Fiddian-Green | DW Documentary

“A giant horse’s head at London’s Marble Arch has become something of a local landmark. It’s the work of British artist Nic Fiddian Green. He’s been producing monumental bronze sculptures for 20 years – and they’re all about horses.” – DW

As Nic Fiddian-Green‘s monumental sculptures are shimmied into position at Olsen Irwin, in preparation for tomorrow’s opening of his exhibition of new works, it is timely to get to know more about the man behind the horse’s head. DW have featured Fiddian-Green in a short documentary in his Surrey Downs studio. As we watch Fiddian-Green at work in his studio we are given unparalleled insight into his processes, techniques, inspiration and concepts – an absolute must see.

On his recent trip to the UK Rex Irwin visited Jonathan Delafield Cook in his studio ahead of his upcoming exhibition at Olsen Irwin. These images gives us a sneak peak of what to expect from the show in December of this year. We begin to see Delafield Cook’s remarkable attention to detail even when working on such an immense scale.  The mastery and command of his medium, charcoal, simply leaves one awestruck and amazed. Delafield Cook’s exhibition will run from 11 December to 25 January at Olsen Irwin.

Nic Fiddian-Green | Tatler

“Where once landscapes designed by Capability Brown were the signifier of wealth and taste, now parkland is nothing without a Fiddian-Green horse’s head towering above it.” – Violet Hudson, Tatler

Since first seeing the 5th century BC Horse of Selene as a student at the British Museum, Nic Fiddian-Green has spent his life devoted to perfecting his craft as a master sculptor, capturing the beauty of the horse. In this interview in his Surrey studio with Violet Hudson for Tatler Home, Fiddian-Green talks about his obsession with the horse figure, his many commissions and his monumental sculpture at Marble Arch.

“Despite these illustrious patrons, Eton-educated Nic is as down to earth as a limbo dancer. In his studio, there is no team of scurrying assistants – just him, his chisel and his blowtorch. He looks like a farmer as he strides around in his waxed jacket and flat cap, adjusting a pin here, smoothing some clay there – with Led Zeppelin playing at full volume.” – Violet Hudson, Tatler

John Olsen | 7:30 Report

ABC’s 7:30 Report give us an insight into the creation of John Olsen‘s newest commission King Sun for the Walker Corporation’s billion-dollar complex at Collins Square, Melbourne. Watch as John negotiates the difficulties of creating the 6 x 8 meter mural and triumphs with an iconic Olsen burst of energy and colour. Tim Olsen reflects on the process saying, “The mural in an ironic way became the source of his own energy, that he was drawn back to, because it was almost like a kind of metaphor to keep living life.” The newest Olsen masterpiece King Sun can now be viewed in the lobby of ‘Tower B’ at 1 Collins Square, Melbourne Docklands.
