Peter Hide

Peter Hide was born in Surrey in 1944, and studied at St. Martin's School of Art under Anthony Caro in the mid-Sixties, becoming his assistant for a year in 1967-68. He taught at various art schools including St. Martin's before taking up a professorship in sculpture at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada.

Prior to emigrating to Canada, Hide was instrumental in setting up the Stockwell Depot studios in south London, and inaugurating the annual Stockwell Depot exhibitions of abstract painting and sculpture which ran throughout the Seventies. He pioneered a more monumental style of steel sculpture after the openess of constructed sculpture in the Sixties, and his work is now in numerous public, private and corporate collections around the world, including the Tate Gallery, London, The Arts Council of Great Britain, the Museum of Modern Art, Barcelona, and the Goodwood Foundation, Sussex. His solo shows have included The Andre Emmerich Gallery, New York, and the Edmonton Art Gallery, Canada.
