Peter Randall-Page

(1954–)
Randall-Page carves the most beautiful and regular of natural patterns on the surfaces of granite boulders and limestone, inspired by fossils and other natural objects. This creates sculptures that sit naturally in the landscape, or are placed within a wall or bank to become part of the landscape.


His new granite works, including Skin Deep, 2007, have developed out of the artist's interest in organic form and growth patterns in nature, and explore the dynamic tension between order and randomness. Working with naturally eroded glacial granite boulders, he carves the entire surface so that the geometrical patterns have to adapt to the natural bulges and facets of the stone.


Over the last 25 years Randall-Page has gained an international reputation through his sculpture, drawings and prints. He has undertaken numerous large scale commissions and exhibited widely including a major solo exhibition at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park (2009-10). His work is also held in public collections at the British Museum and the Tate.
