Many of the new sculptures are about being here, appreciating here, ‘I Have it Here’, ‘Here’, ‘Place’, ‘Reflected’. Others are offering a thank you for what we have ‘For the Birds’.
In all, there is tenderness combined with strength, particularly ‘Come Along Girls’ and ‘In my Hands’ and of course the sculptures are, and remain to be about love, the romantic ‘There you Are’ and family love in ‘Bang’. The first sculpture from last year, the one that got me back on my feet again, back in the studio, is ‘Love Remains’, on that we can rely. – Carol Peace 2021
Carol Peace says of her sculpture:
My work has always been concerned with human form and I have always used clay. The pace of the sculpture is defined by the texture. Rough textures and lines emulate rhythms of movement while detailed work creates a feeling of stillness and intimacy.
It is the clay that I love, but I also like the idea of changing something so fluid and fragile into something that will last forever. I cast work into bronze or iron resin and the patina, often dark in the low-lights and light on the highlights, can help define the form.
My inspiration is from everyday life in occurrences, feelings; the way people behave and react towards one another. I realised rather naively and embarrassingly recently that my feelings, aspirations and desires and in fact the same as everyone’s and that it is themselves that they relate to in my work.’ – Carol Peace.
Carol has had solo exhibitions with the Fairfax Gallery in Tunbridge Wells as well as art fairs in Hong Kong & Singapore.
