Topsham 2011 * Biography. Peter Thursby [1930-2011], born in Salisbury, brought-up in Jamaica. After National Service studied art at St Pauls Cheltenham and then with Paul Feiler [see lots 400 and 401] and Ernest Pascoe at the West of England College of Art. Throughout the 1950s Peter's output was largely in the form of paintings. By 1957 his career became textural and fully abstract. From the early 60s his work was almost exclusively sculpture, winning his first major award in 1962. Solo exhibitions at Plymouth Art Gallery in 1964 and the Marjorie Parr Gallery and he began making sculpture from reclaimed materials. In the 1970s he produced his Podmen Sculptures followed by the Sarum and Flight series. His monumental works, cast by the Morris Singer Foundry, came in the 1980s. Thursby gave generously of his time to art education and arts organisations including the West of England Academy of which he was president for five years [1995-2000]. In 1995 he received an honorary doctorate from the University of the West of England, Bristol. His career culminated in his Optimism series, one of which is in the Queen's Collection. His legacy was a body of work that is widely recognised as a significant contribution to 20th century sculpture. * Notes. There is an excellent book on the artist written by Vivienne Light and Simon Olding and published by Canterton Books. Peter Thursby, Paul Feiler and the St Ives School Two people to whom Thursby acknowledged a debt and admiration are Paul Feiler and Ernest Pascoe. Both Slade graduates, they were his tutors at The West of England College of Art (now University of the West of England) between 1953-54. They each had a significant influence in Thursby's development as a sculptor. In 1953 Feiler bought a chapel (once the studio of Stanhope Forbes) at Kerris near Penzance. This was the year Thursby became one of Feilers students. In order to inspire his students in their work Feiler actively forged a link between them and leading Cornish artists, arranging for the students to spend a two week period in Cornwall at studios including those of Peter Lanyon, Roger Hilton and Terry Frost. Thursby later became a member of both the Newlyn and Penwith societies.
