Peter Tilley

BIOGRAPHY

(b. 1946. Williamston, VIC, Australia)
First exhibiting with Access Contemporary Art Gallery/Brenda May Gallery in 1989, Peter Tilley's relationship with the Gallery is enduring. After studying Ceramics (1973-75) and receiving a Certificate of Art (1978-79) from Newcastle School of Art & Design, Tilley completed a Master of Philosophy (Fine Art) at Newcastle University (2008-10). At the beginning of 2016, Peter Tilley had solo and collaborative work on view at Newcastle Art Gallery in 'A Dirty Business' with Andy Devine and Andrew Styan. In both 2015 and 2014, Tilley's impressive sculptures won the Hunter Region Botanic Gardens Sculpture Prize. 2014 marked Tilley's tenth year as an exhibitor in 'Sculpture by the Sea', establishing him as part of the decade club. His pensive figures have become an iconic feature of this annual event. 2014 also saw the start of Peter Tilley and Andy Devine's joint exhibition 'Black Harvest', which is travelling to Moree Plains Gallery, Cessnock Regional Art Gallery, Glasshouse Regional Gallery, Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre and Manly Art Gallery and Museum until mid-2016.
