Based on northern European archaeology, natural history and the everyday designed world, Tim Pomeroy‘s sculptures are made in traditional 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. Marble Slate Wood, Pomeroy’s third exhibition with The Fine Art Society, will be on show from November 16th to December 22nd 2018.
“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.”
