Millennium Optimism

Millennium, Optimism is influenced by Peter Thursby’s interest in architectural forms. At once both huge and elegant his work is strikingly original in its viewpoint.
Experimental in his drawing Thursby takes the best of the past and incorporates it into the present. His work is often alternates polished and painted surface. A master of diverse media such as: bronze, aluminium, stainless steel and silver. He develops ideas based around themes such as human figures, heads, architectural shapes, mechanical objects, flights and spires. His work transforms the way we look at the world ordering chaos and transforming the way in which we view it.
