Joe Fafard

"Because She Can #2" 1996 Patinated Bronze

Joe Fafard is one of Canada's best known contemporary artists. Fafard's sculpture has been widely exhibited in Canada as well as in the United States and Europe. His work is included in many public, corporate and private collections. The scope of Fafard's work is exceptional. His numerous commissions have ranged from Bill Cosby to Cadillac Fairview's seven full size cows The Pasture, located in downtown Toronto. His earlier painted ceramic sculpture depicted his neighbours, Canadian and international figures, and his ever popular cows and horses. A sense of Western Canada subtly haunts Fafard's works. Works produced in bronze and other metals touch on everything from art history, to Canadian literature and political figures, to an abiding interest in images of farm animals. Fafard, who now resides in Regina, has received many awards, including the Order of Canada and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Allied Arts Award.
