Born 1954, Essex.
Peter Randall-Page attended Bath Academy of Art at Corsharn from 1973-77. He found himself in the entirely practical but highly influential surroundings of the stonemason's yard working on the conservation of thirteenth century sculpture at Wells Cathedral, before taking up a Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Award to study marble carving at Carrara in 1980.
A number of public commissions followed: Leicester Royal Infirmary, 1982, St George's Hospital, Tooting, 1985, and projects with the ecology group Common Ground such as New Milestones, Dorset Wayside Carvings, 1985, along the Dorset coastal footpaths. He has participated in numerous exhibitions across the country from the Tate Gallery's Making Sculpture in 1983 to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park's Attitudes in 1985. In 1992 his work was the subject of a major retrospective at Leeds City Art Gallery organised by the Henry Moore Centre for the Study of Sculpture.
Randall-Page's work exemplifies the resurgence of interest in direct carving, and craftsman-based techniques. He has said his vocabulary springs from a fascination with the expressive quality of organic form.
Peter Randall-Page lives and works in Devon.
