Peter Trevelyan Biography

Drawing and sculpture are entwined in Peter Trevelyan's practice with both two and three-dimensional works 'drawn' in fine pencil lead or created with paper. An investigation of the role of drawing is at the heart of his work. Patient careful craftsmanship, the slow meticulous creation of form through the assemblage of repeated elements and an interest in the architecture of space are also characteristics of his elegant, refined works, which speak to the world's structures but also to fragility and ethereality — both practically and metaphorically.
