The Woolff Gallery is delighted to launch Carol Peace's 2014 solo exhibition. Here collectors have an opportunity to preview a new body of work which the artist developed during her recent six month residency in Barcelona. In this exhibition Peace explores the ideas of freedom, identity, and what is âhome'.
âThese are the sculptures of my imagination, set free by Catalonia'. CAROL PEACE
Carol Peace (b.1970) has been practising as a sculptor for over 20 years. She initially studied sculpture at Winchester School of Art, and later studied drawing at The Prince's Drawing School, London. In 2007 she co-founded the Bristol Drawing School.
Peace is a sculptor who could not work without drawing. The process of drawing, that intuitive response, is in part what she aims for in her work. She initially sculpts in clay, which like charcoal is quick to make marks with. Once finished, the clay sculpture is then cast into bronze where those fluid marks of the making become fixed.
âIt's all about trying to see, drawing enables that, but it is with clay that I am able to communicate'. CAROL PEACE
Peace has obtained numerous public commissions, including: âPossibly' at Glyndebourne festival, âThe Dancer' at Ashton Court, and large-scale public sculptures in London, Bristol and Portishead. She has exhibited throughout the UK & Worldwide and has had solo shows in London, The Netherlands, France, Spain, Athens and Zurich.
