General Notes:In an email dated February 19, 2003, Sylvia Robertson said:-

Peter NICHOLLS is a sculptor. His sculptures are usually constructed from large pieces of timber combined with heavy chains and cable. This, he says, is creating an interplay between tensional and compressive forces.

He was one of 11 scuptors selected to be the sole NZ rep. at an arts festival to be staged to complement the Commonwealth Games at Edmonton, Canada in August 1978. His sculpture will be a permanent fixture in an Edmonton city park called "Pump Structure" and will make use of large pieces of wood and steel, and will symbolise the drawing of life from the earth. Also been represented in several international sculptural exhibitions in Australia.

Unable to make a living from sculpture, Peter taught art at various Auckland secondary schools, the last one being Takapuna Grammar. 1990 - tutors in sculpture at the Otago Polytechnic School of Art, Dunedin.

He was one of the leading NZ sculptors invited by the Auckland City Art Gallery to participate in a major sculptural exhibition there in 1986 - "Spine".
In 1984 the Dunedin Public Art Gallery organised a retrospective of his work.

One of his sculptures measures 30' x 6' - stands on a hillside at Kerikeri - called "Suspension"

In 1979 was a visiting lecturer in sculpture at the University of Wisconsin.

Married at St Aidans, Remuera, Auckland, to Dianne Ffrench in 1964 by Canon Lionel Beere who got up from his sick bed to do so - then back to bed! (Canon Beere possibly a relative). Di died in 1999 aged 52.

Noted events in his life were:

Occupation: Peter is an Artist.

Peter married Dianne Carmel Gertrude FRENCH [1785] [MRIN: 234], daughter of Charles Benjamin FRENCH [9441] and Lyla [9442], 19 Jun 1964 in Rumuera Auckland New Zealand. Dianne was born in 1946 in Melbourne VIC Australia, died 25 May 1999 in Dunedin Otago New Zealand at age 53, and was buried in Waitati Cemetery Dunedin Otago New Zealand.

General Notes:In an email dated February 19, 2003, Sylvia Robertson said:-

Di has introduced the old Irish double FF into her name which had been dropped.

Dianne is also a sculptor, and photographer. Trustbank Canterbury Artist in Residence for 1990, Di also has a background in academic study, sculpture and performance art. I've broken all the rules of photography she says, in her search for a heightened metaphor through which to transfer idea into image.

In a complex process she first photographs the figure or subject, incorporates it in a mock-up with other material such as small sculptures, drawings, historical or architectural emblems and records it on a slide transparency. This is then projected onto a specially constructed surface to be rephotographed. And Di FFRENCH's surface is no ordinary surface. Within an oblong wooden box are spread layers of burnt coke, ash, coal and dried leaves, sometimes sprinkled with powdered colour tempera. This gives the final print irradiating points of carbon-light, limited colour and touches of marble-like texture.
