Biography

Born in 1951, Peter Shelton received a B.A. from Pomona College, in Claremont, California, in 1973. He worked as a welder in Ohio and Michigan before moving to Los Angeles in late 1974. He received an M.F.A. from the University of California at Los Angeles in 1979. Shelton's sculptural work spans a wide range of forms and concerns, from the environmental works and site-based installations of the 1970s and 80s to the individual pieces and complex bronze castings of the 90s. His art alternately explores both figuration and abstraction; his sculptural language expresses his interest in architectural structures and in shapes that reflect the human body. Throughout, there is an abiding material concern for craft, technique, and formal nuance.
