Peter Thursby  (1930–2011)

Evolving Optimism

Peter Thursby is known for his statues and his abstract style, which he developed from his first piece he produced at the start of the Second World War. What do you think the repeated abstract shapes could represent in this piece? The title Evolving Optimism suggests growth - as it is evolving and changing. The group of repeated shapes have a distinct raised part, which brings to mind an arm, as it’s reaching towards the unique circular shape. What do you think the circle represents?
