Artist #42: Peter Tansill
Peter Tansill is a Virginian artist. He studied at VCU's School of the Arts and continued at Radford where he earned his BA in Fine Art in 1985. He likes to go dumpster diving and antiquing to collect the materials for his sculptural works. He then assembles these works together. He is currently showing in Richmond and also has works for sale at the VMFA gift shop and will be on display at the Artemis Gallery.
His sculptures are a compiled format of mix and matched once discarded items and doll parts. These found object pieces are imaginatively put together and are strangely charming. Tansill's artwork can be seen at his website here. But I'll just post some pictures I took from the VMFA gift shop of his work.
