Peter Drake

I love the nostalgic overtones in Peter Drake’s artwork. His new series is based on a collection of lead soldiers his father assembled over the years. ‘I was surprised when I inherited them to see how many depicted Arab and North African soldiers. There were Zouaves, Saracenes, Mamaluks and Ottoman Turks. It struck me as strange that we had been demonizing certain cultures forever. That even in child’s play the exotic could take on a menacing and evil aspect and that so much animosity could be embedded in a child’s toy’.
