Brief Biography: Peter Eugene Ball was born in Coventry in 1943. He attended Coventry College of Art and in 1961 joined the Marjorie Parr Gallery on the King’s Road in London where he had his first one-man show in 1967. Since that time he has accepted numerous commissions, both religious and secular, and continued to exhibit his work in galleries and exhibitions throughout the UK and across Europe and America. His career now spans more than 60 years.
About My Work:

Ball is probably best known for his religious work and to date has more than 90 pieces in cathedrals and churches throughout Britain – almost certainly more than any other living artist. He constantly strives to create sculptures which provide a serene and contemplative focus and to imbue each one with a timeless quality which allows them to instantly settle into the ancient spaces in which they are placed.

His secular work covers a wide variety of subjects – harpies and satyrs, centaurs and warriors, dancers and mermaids – and it is within this non-religious world that he is able to draw on his own particular literary and historical interests, to ponder the vagaries of life and to express his often wry sense of humour. He uses driftwood and found objects, partially covered in copper or pewter and often embellished with silver or gold leaf.
