Peter Randall-Page British, b. 1954

Peter Randall-Page studied sculpture at Bath Academy of Art from 1973-1977. During the past 40 years, Randall-Page has gained an international reputation through his sculpture, drawings and prints. His work is in the permanent collections of the Tate Gallery and the British Museum and, in June 2015, he was elected as a Royal Academician in the category of sculpture. 

 

His practice has 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." 

 

His public commissions include the 70 ton 'Seed' (2007) for The Eden Project, Cornwall, 'Give and Take' in Newcastle which won the 2006 Marsh Award for Public Sculpture; façades at the new Laboratory building at Dulwich College designed in collaboration with Grimshaw architects (2016); 'The One and the Many' (2016) at Fitzroy Place, London; and most recently 'Touchstone', a new commission for Transport for London at Oval Triangle, London, which was installed in June 2018.
