Peter Sainty AC6Peter Sainty Solo Exhibition
28 July – 8 September 2018
Sainty has lived and worked as an artist in South Wales for forty years. He studied sculpture in Liverpool and London in the Sixties. Sainty worked as a lecturer in Foundation Studies and developed his career working in theatre and television prop-making.
‘I’m sceptical about some contemporary art but I also think we are living in a very interesting period, one that challenges older artists. However, in the end, one has to be oneself’.
Since 1980, he has concentrated on his own sculpture. The study of natural shapes, informed his work, with particular pieces of sculpture from the Renaissance to the Twentieth Century also being a stimulus. Drawing has been a key part of his working methods which have largely involved mould making from an original shape made in clay, polystyrene plaster to be cast in more durable materials.
