Description

This sumptuous, hard cover, art book provides a retrospective of Peter Hide's career as an internationally renowned sculptor - from the early 1970's when he burst onto the art scene in England, to his remarkable upsurge in Canada as one of our most sought-after and collected sculptors. Hide is best known for upright, large-scale sculptures made of welded, rusted steel. "Iron Bridge" refers to one of Hide's seminal works, and also speaks to the "bridge" between England and Canada, the places that have most influenced his work. The power of Peter Hide's sculpture comes from his willingness to exploit aspects of feeling and emotional states in his sculptures, while avoiding any suggestion that feeling is the subject. Iron Bridge features over 80 colour images of Hide's work that are woven among a substantial text featuring essays and interviews by a number of fellow artists and critics.
