About the Artwork
For over 30 years Peter Randall-Page’s work has been inspired and informed by a study of natural phenomena.
In these new works entitled ‘Shapes in the Clouds I, IV & V’, Randall-Page combines geometric order with geological chaos to produce something both visceral and sensual.
By stacking spheres together systematically he has produced curvaceous variations on three of the five platonic solids. In his words “These fundamental regular forms have been known since antiquity and are the geometric building blocks of our universe.”
The highly figured Rosso Luana marble introduces a cloud like and poetic quality in contrast to the structural discipline of the forms themselves
