"Love Remains": A Solo Show by Carol Peace

6 November - 4 December 2021

“My inspiration comes from now, today, what’s happening.
The quiet power of peaceful, often beautiful, rebellion.
The striving for equality.
I am doing what I can, how I can.
My sculpture is made to give us strength and joy, provide a view to lift and to enable.” - Carol Peace

The Chelmsford gallery doors are opening again for the first exhibition since lockdown, a solo show by Carol peace, Sculptor. Featuring over 60 works of sculpture for the home & the garden and a collection of life paintings & drawings. Preview On Saturday 6th November the exhibition will be available to view at the Chelmsford Gallery, 4 – 8pm. We invite you to come and meet the artist and join us for drinks.

Carol’s sculpture specialises in the human form and expressive movement; working in both bronze and stone resin, she often imparts a tactile texture to her playful characters. Peace is a sculptor who could not work without drawing. The process of drawing, that intuitive response, is what she aims for in her work. While some of the sculptures are layered with meaning, a direct and honest response is often present. She sculpts in clay, which like charcoal is quick to make marks with, once finished it is cast into resin or bronze when those fluid marks of the making are then fixed.

Carol Peace was born in 1970 and graduated from the Winchester School of Art in 1992 with a degree in Fine Art Sculpture. In 2001-02, Peace went on to study Drawing at the Prince's Drawing School in London. The versatile sculptor/draughtswoman has exhibited her work across the UK and wider Europe, and further afield. She has held solo exhibitions at major art fairs in the United States and England. Peace has been commissioned by Ashton Court Estate, Woodland Trust, and Bristol's Taywood Homes.
