Carol Peace @ Broomhill
Founder the Bristol Drawing School and patron of RWA, Carol Peace is figurative sculptor who could not work without drawing. The process of drawing, that intuitive response, is what she aims for in her work. "It's all about trying to see, drawing enables that".
Carol studied sculpture at Winchester School of Art and drawing at The Royal Drawing School. Four life-size bronzes were recently installed in Barbados; her work is collected in Hong Kong and Singapore, as well as the United States and Canada. Closer to home, she shows in Stockholm and Frankfurt, and has had solo shows in The Netherlands, France, Marbella, Athens and Zurich. At home she regularly shows at the Glyndebourne festival and with her gallery in London.
The sculptures are made in clay, which like charcoal is quick to make marks with, once finished it is cast into bronze, those fluid marks of the making are then fixed forever. "The work is about everyday life, in its minutia, the sheer fantasticness of it all."
Works illustrated here have been chosen by the artist. The works shown on this page are not necessarily on display at Broomhill.
