Description

A CBC New Brunswick Book List Selection
"I start with an original object, break it, and transform parts of the piece into other materials. These pieces gather meaning and explanation as I work with them."

Peter Powning is simultaneously referred to as a sculptor and a ceramist, but his art does not fit easy categorization, incorporating and combining elements from one medium into another. His work challenges the viewer to reconsider the object, its form, and its function. This inventiveness has resulted in numerous exhibitions, awards, and commissions for public art sculptures throughout Canada.

Featuring 175 full-colour images of Powning’s work along with essays by curators and critics, Peter Powning celebrates the career of one of Canada’s finest visual artists and accompanies a major retrospective exhibition organized by the Beaverbrook Art Gallery.

Editorial Reviews

"A pleasure to read, and the perfect coffee table book to showcase inventive New Brunswick art."

— <i>[EDIT]</i>

"The book is much more than a usual exhibition catalogue: its bilingual text and images of the work, most photographed by Powning himself, offer a rare, intimate glimpse into a life devoted to the pursuit of a multi-disciplined practice."

— <i>Billie</i>
