Abstract or Description

Images of my work with text is included in a section of this colour hardback format book with introduction by Roderick Coyne and essays by Peter Kardia , Malcolm Le Grice , Hester Westley and sections on 25 artists.

Peter Kardia is widely recognised as a radical and influential teacher at both Saint Martins and the Royal College during the 60s and 70s. From the long list of Peter Kardia's ex-students 25 well-known artists have been invited to participate in an exhibition at the P3 gallery (www.p3exhibitions.com) in March 2010, as a sort of potted retrospective of both their work and Peter's teaching.

They are asked to show a piece of work from their student or graduation days, as well as a current piece, collectively providing a body of work that will show the range of British sculpture from the last 30 years.

The book acts as a catalogue for the exhibition, but is also intended to work as a stand-alone production and extends a little further to include approx. 4 images per artist, including one from both degree show and current times.

About the Author(s) Peter Kardia is widely recognised as a radical and influential teacher at both Saint Martins and the Royal College during the 60s and 70s, and his essay on how we should be approaching art and education is central to the book. Hester Wesley has researched and written on Peter's influence on art education and his teaching at Saint Martins and the Royal College, placing it into wider context of art education generally. The last essay is by Malcolm Le Grice (art historian) on the influence of the art teacher and art schools in history on the artist.
