THE work of Essex-born and internationally renowned artist Peter Randall-Page RA is coming to the East of England for the very first time at the Gibberd Gallery, managed by the Harlow Art Trust.
The exhibition, titled ‘Caught in the Act’, will be a celebration of the artist (pictured above), his working methods and the ideas that inspire him.
The gallery will be transformed into a journey through Peter’s artistic transitions allowing visitors to examine techniques close up and investigate their beginnings in the natural world and the mathematics which are within each form.
The journey begins with the stone carving Warp and Woof placed in The Water Gardens, creating a unique marker and a starting point for visitors to this ground-breaking show.
This will be an exhibition that lives within the gallery in a series of ‘acts’ each section and artwork representing a different part of his working practice.
Stand out works from Randall-Page RA include the ceramic mosaic ‘Wing’ (see picture below) which magnifies the intricate cellular structure of a grasshopper wing with each tile representing a single cell.
This exhibition is a fitting display of contemporary sculpture for a town with an established reputation for 20th Century sculpture on public display across Harlow.
The dates for exhibitions, viewings and events are below:
Private view: Thursday 16th June 6pm – 8pm
Exhibition Open: 17th June – 2nd September
