THE OWL SCARF

Silk Scarf by Anna-Wili Highfield
Limited Edition
Digitally printed in Sydney, Australia
135 x 98cm

Renowned for her incredible animal sculptures created from paper, Anna-Wili Highfield, the daughter of a puppeteer, studied Fine Art at the National Art School, Sydney. In 2008, after working as a Scenic Artist for Opera Australia, she began making sculptures independently by commission. Her works are held in private collections around the world and have featured in numerous publications.

Anna-Wili's sculptures are stitched together from archival cotton rag. Her works explore the organic qualities and resistance of paper, generating a tension between the complex realism of form and the limitations and economy of the materials used. They represent animal life in an immediate way that conveys the energy, movement and physical character of different creatures. Her aim is to engineer a moment of contact with nature in a way that emphasises both the startling differences and similarities of human and animal forms and consciousness.

Heartfelt thanks to wonderfully talented Anna-Wili, for supporting An Adventure of the Heart and helping to help end fistula.
