Drawing and sculpture are entwined in Peter Trevelyan’s practice with three-dimensional works ‘drawn’ in fine pencil lead on paper, plastic or other media. An investigation of the role of drawing is at the heart of his work. As he has said: “A drawing is a plan, a preliminary visualisation of something to be undertaken in the physical world. Drawing is an ancient technology, a system for postulating, organising and mapping information about the physical world and manipulating it in order to change or affect that world.”
Peter Trevelyan graduated with a BFA from the Ilam School of Fine Arts, University of Canterbury in 2000. He completed his MFA at Massey University’s School of Fine Arts in 2008 and a PhD in 2014. His work is in public and private collections in New Zealand, Australia and Hong Kong.
