Phil Neary



Phil Neary’s work immediately recalls historical sculpture. His work appears as delicate artefacts; being small, bronze, and intricate in nature. Neary’s sculpture also relates to his own historical work, in its creation and feeding of dialogue, holding the viewers attention, and launching ideas.

Auckland-based Neary has been the recipient of numerous awards throughout his art career. He has exhibited in many solo and group shows since completing his BFA and MFA (Hons) in Sculpture, from University of Auckland’s Elam School of Fine Art. His work has been showcased in numerous outdoor sculpture exhibitions and he has held both solo shows, and been part of many group shows in New Zealand.
