Using only hand tools Peter Randall Page has carved small sculptures with a continuous lines, dividing the surface of a stone into ‘territories’.
"The lines appear to bisect their plane, but not as a scalpel does: they partition it with no pretense at economy. They meander like rivers carving up the landscape – you’re always on one side or the other, but stick a pin, blindfold, into the map and there’s no telling which side it will be” Philip Ball, Scientist and writer.
Randall-Pages sculpture and drawings have always been informed and inspired by the study of natural phenomena and its subjective impact on our emotions. In recent years his work has become increasingly concerned with the underlying principles determining growth and the forms it produces. In his words “geometry is the theme on which nature plays her infinite variations, and can be seen as a kind of pattern book on which the most complex and sophisticated structures are based.”
Born in 1954, Peter Randall-Page studied sculpture at Bath Academy of Art from 1973-1977. He was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Arts from the University of Plymouth in 1999, an Honorary Doctorate of Letters from York St John University in 2009, an Honorary Doctorate of Letters from Exeter University in 2010, and an Honorary Doctorate of Letters from Bath Spa University in 2013. In 2015 he was elected as a Royal Academician.
