Anna-Wili Highfield Logo

Born in 1980, Anna-Wili studied Fine Art at the National Art School, Sydney. Her sculptures are held in collections around the world and have featured in numerous publications, including The New York Times and the cover of Sculpture Review, USA. Hermès holds the largest commercial collection of Anna-Wili's work.

Anna-Wili’s works explore the organic qualities and resistance of materials, generating a tension between the complex realism of form and the limitations and economy of the materials used. They represent 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 emphasizes both the startling differences and similarities of human and animal forms and consciousness.
