  • > TIM POMEROY - MARBLE SLATE WOOD
16th November - 22 December 2018


Based on northern European archaeology, natural history and the everyday designed world, the sculptures on display (26 works including wall mounted pieces) are made in traditional sculptural materials: stone, wood, slate, and marble. The forms, shapes and ideas are both contemporary and ancient. The Neolithic archaeological finds of Arran inspire Pomeroy. They lend his work a mysterious and precious quality and hint at otherworldliness. Tim Pomeroy was born in Hamilton, Scotland in 1957. He attended Gray’s School of Art from 1976-81 and has worked as a full-time artist since 1983.

 

“There is, in short, an intense, transformative synergy of images and materials in Tim Pomeroy's sculpture which goes beyond what mere words, however imaginatively and carefully chosen, can do – a unifying poetry within which those interweaving acts of hand, thought and emotion convey the sacred in a most profoundly contemporary form.”
- Nicholas Usherwood (2015)
