Peter Randall-Page's work is held in numerous public and private collections throughout the world including Japan, South Korea, Australia, United States, Eire, Germany and the Netherlands. Closer to home, a selection of his public sculptures can be found in London, Edinburgh, Manchester, Bristol and Newbury and he is represented in the permanent collections of the Tate Gallery and the British Museum.
His practice has always been informed and inspired by the study of organic form and its subjective impact on our emotions and the use of incredible detail.
In 1999, he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Arts from the University of Plymouth and from 2002 to 2005 was an Associate Research Fellow at Dartington College of Arts.
He was a member of the design team for the Education Resource Centre (The Core) at the Eden Project in Cornwall, influencing the overall design of the building and incorporating an enormous granite sculpture (‘Seed’) at its heart.
In recent years his work has become increasingly concerned with the underlying principles determining growth and the forms it produces. In his words "geometry is the theme on which nature plays her infinite variations, fundamental mathematical principle become a kind of pattern book from which nature constructs the most complex and sophisticated structures."
Randall-Page was elected to the Royal Academy of Arts in 2015 and is referred to as a Royal Academician allowing the use of RA after his name.
