Grove by Peter Randall-Page, 2011
Kingshill Grange public art
Sited at the entrance to the housing development built in 2010 and 2011 off Kingshill Road, High Wycombe. Supported by a public art steering group of community representatives including students from Royal Grammar School and Highworth County Combined Primary School, Taylor Wimpey commissioned internationally renowned British artist Peter Randall-Page in 2010. The piece is carved in relief from a naturally eroded granite boulder with a continuous line over its entire surface and situated in a formal circle of pleached Hornbeam trees creating a single canopy that is open to allow in light. Peter Randall-Page’s sculptures are inspired by the natural world, and his works are displayed in public and private collections around the World, including in the UK at Tate Gallery and the British Museum. “Grove” was unveiled in June 2011.
