The artist Peter Lyell Robinson considers the phenomenon of sculpture, from the Portable art of the Ice Age to current work, and how the human urge to create, as well as some of the techniques of sculpture, span vast tracks of time.
For the artist, the 'form' of the sculpture is everything; inter-related shapes, working in harmony, and resolved as a whole. But is this a new approach, or are there deeper roots to this study of form and shape?
An opportunity arose in 2013 when the artist was approached by Dr Jill Cook of the British Museum and commissioned to create three sculptures based on prehistoric portable art, as part of the exhibition 'Ice Age: Arrival of the Modern Mind'.
