Fanny Lam Christie installing The Encounter

Biography / CV of Fanny Lam Christie

Fanny is a BA (Hons) graduate of Edinburgh College of Art in sculpture in 2004, and previously studied painting under Professor Chen Shou Soo and Angela Lattanzi in Hong Kong.

She set up her art practice in Perthshire in 2005. Her earlier work explored the adverse climate scenarios. Her large scale bronze `Storm` received the N. S. MacFarlane Charitable Trust Award in the Royal Scottish Academy exhibition in 2006, which became a feature in her solo exhibition `Nature Unbound` in Eskmills, Musselburgh. The work is now in Stanford University, U.S.A.

In 2010, Fanny was awarded one of the four Grassroots Public Art commissions in West Lothian to regenerate a community green space with sculpture. In 2012, she was awarded the Blairgowrie Community Campus public art award. In 2014 she received the Place Partnership Award from the Perth Museum and Art Gallery. In 2015, she received a Creative Scotland Open Project Award for her `Aquacultural Encounters` exhibition at University of Stirling. The exhibition was inspired by her year-long artist-in-residence at University of Stirling.

She exhibits regularly at national open exhibitions and sculpture events. Her work is in both private and public collections.

Artist Statement of Fanny Lam Christie

"My sculpture work explores our relationship with nature. Nature`s resilience and the changing landscape intrigues me.

I integrate casting techniques with contemporary concepts and a research approach to sculpture. Artworks can be both contemplative and thought provoking. I take the essence from my research ideas, and interpret them imaginatively to create unique and intriguing outcomes. I view sculpture as a universal language and seek to let it speak to the viewers.

Depending on the context and intention for a work, I use a wide range of materials including clay, bronze, aluminium, wood, glass, slate and water. I am keen to use reclaimed materials whenever possible.

I have been casting bronze since 2005 and recently I have been experimenting melting hot glass into bronze. My art practice include sculpture, site-specific installation and public art projects." Fanny Lam Christie
