Nic Fiddian-Green | New Works


Nic Fiddian-Green‘s current exhibition at Olsen Irwin has been captured in a stunning film by director Robert Scott. Scott was so taken with the exhibition, he was even inspired to compose a piece of music for the film, which ” I hope reflects the power and fragility of these beautiful works.” – Robert Scott.

Fiddian-Green’s New Works are on display at Olsen Irwin until 17 November 2013.

After visiting the studio of Nic Fiddian-Green in our last post, we are now transported to his idyllic family home. Earlier this year The Telegraph readers were given a tour of Fiddian-Green’s home in Surrey Downs, UK. Read the entire article here on The Telegraph website.

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.

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
