Peter Hide: A Sculptor's Life
Peter Hide: A Sculptor's Life chronicles Hide's years spent between England and Canada, the places that have most influenced his work. The power of Peter Hide's sculptures comes from his willingness to exploit aspects of feeling and emotional states in his sculptures, while avoiding any suggestion that feeling is the subject. Peter Hide: A Sculptor's Life features over 130 colour and black and white images of Hide's work that are woven among a substantial text featuring essays and interviews by artists and critics: Piri Halasz, Terry Fenton, Jon Wood, Sam Cornish, Jetske Sybesma and Russell Bingham. Hide is represented in important private and public collections throughout North America and Europe and currently makes his home in Edmonton, Canada where he teaches at the University of Alberta.
