Peter D Cole has always been on our 'must-have' list and fortunately the buying group found the perfect piece to add to our collection at the Australian Galleries, Collingwood.
Peter is one of Australia’s most well known contemporary sculptors. Living in Kyneton, Victoria his purpose built studio is adjacent to his home, and it's there that he creates sculptures characterised by angular, architectural forms, minimalist lines and bold, primary colours. I visited Peter a few years ago, at his home in Kyneton and he told me he loved the area and that he was ' a plains man' -which is clearly evident by his use of strong lines and simple sculptural shapes.
His work encompasses large scale public works, as well as smaller pieces, such as our recent addition. The work is made of a variety of materials including powdercoated steel, brass, and marble.
