Peter Randall-Page: In Mind of Botany
A Mead Gallery Exhibition
Sat 10 Jan – Sat 7 Feb 1998
This series of recent drawings and prints by Peter Randall-Page have been inspired by botanical collections in Australia, Great Britain and South Africa. The exhibition investigates the abstract patterns and structures of exotic seed pods and fruits, investing them with a sense of life and growth which is characteristic of the artist’s work in stone. The exhibition contains a selection of Randall-Page’s small-scale sculpture in the Gallery and several of his larger sculptures are installed on the lawns outside the Arts Centre, allowing comparison between his work in two dimensions and his work in three dimensions.
