Monica, Series ‘MC1R Natuurlijk rood haar’ by Hanne Van Der Woude, 2007
As every first-year art student knows, red and green are complementary colours and combining them produces huge optical impact. Put a red dot on a green plane and something special happens: the image starts to move and vibrate.
In 2004, Hanne van der Woude eyed the landscape around Nijmegen (a city in the east of the Netherlands, near the German border) with this knowledge in mind. She stood in the floodplain beside the River Waal and thought how she could make the green washlands look even greener. Her mind turned to redheads.
It was the start of a quest to find models with red hair. To begin with, it wasn’t easy. She started to hang around outside primary schools and go up to people in the street; the search gradually turned into obsession.
Born in London in 1944, Peter Burke completed a student apprenticeship with Rolls Royce Aero Engines in 1960 after leaving school. He then went on to study sculpture at Bristol Polytechnic Fine Art Faculty, graduating in 1972.
The human form is often central to Peter Burke’s sculpture, as with Antony Gormley, who began working at a similar time, Burke often uses casts of a model to express a sense of universality in his sculpture. Working in steel and iron, using industrial processes, Burke’s engineering background has strongly informed his working practice. His work often reflects mankind’s relationship with mass–production and standardisation through a rhythm and repetition of materials.
Peter Burke has exhibited since 1973 in mixed and solo shows and has featured regularly in British and overseas galleries. His work is part of public and private collections including the Contemporary Art Society, London; Henry Moore Foundation and Greenwich Council, London. In 1995, Burke was awarded the prestigious Pollock–Krasner Award. In 2005, he was awarded the Diane Middlebrook Fellowship at the Djerassi Artists Program, California. In 2010, Burke exhibited in the ‘Ten Monumental British Sculptures’ exhibition at the Cerro de Vila Museum, Portugal and in 2011 had solo exhibitions in both London and Bath.
Most recently Peter gave an artist-led talk entitled ‘Sculpture and Reproductive Technology’ at an independently organised event by TEDx in Bradford on Avon. Visit the link listed under Additional Reference Material to find out more!
Peter Burke currently lives and works in Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire.
