Carol Lehrer Crawford is an artist practising in Sydney, Australia. She has been creating sculptures for over 15 years in a variety of materials including alabaster, marble, bronze, wax and plaster.
“I consider my sculptural life began with Genesis I (back in 2010), which is a limited edition cast sculpture which has also been cast in bronze,” says Carol. “The stone sculptures Bayla, Perle, Groy Hamsa and Hadassah all descended from Genesis I, and are representative of my love of soft feminine curvilinear (sometimes interlocking) forms. The themes of love and nurturing are integral to my practice.”
Carols is recognised for her organic and sensuous curvilinear forms. She has exhibited in numerous group exhibitions and has been a finalist in the Tom Bass Prize 2016 and 2018, Harbour Sculpture 2015 and 2017, Northern Beaches Art Prize 2017, Warringah Small Sculpture Art Prize 2016, Sculpture at Sawmillers 2016 and Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize 2016.
Carol has completed several public commissions including two portraits for the Cootamundra ‘The Captain’s Walk’ in country NSW and has various works in private and corporate collections within Australia, New Zealand, Denmark (Copenhagen) and Germany (Berlin).
She holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of New South Wales and has also studied Fine Arts (Theory) at University of Sydney. She works from her beautiful light-filled studio in Surry Hills, Sydney.
