Terry Stringer has an abiding interest in uniting multiple elements into a singular sculpture. Stringer encourages the viewer to make a series of acquaintances with his works, to discover a succession of subjects within one sculpture. The viewer who takes the time to examine a work from different perspectives is rewarded with a multi-faceted experience.
In Transfigured Heads Stringer’s recent works representing heads and figures are exhibited within the context of his artistic development over several decades, with earlier sculpture drawn from the James Wallace Arts Trust Collection.
Terry Stringer ONZM is a leading New Zealand sculptor. Born in Cornwall in 1946, he arrived in New Zealand in 1953. Graduating with Honours in 1967 from the University of Auckland’s Elam School of Fine Arts, Stringer has been the recipient of many significant scholarships and awards. Working mainly in three dimensions, Stringer delights in creating spatial illusions and concealed meanings within his works. Narrative elements are often present in his figure sculptures, drawn from a wide range of artistic and literary sources. Stringer has exhibited extensively throughout his career, with solo shows in Auckland, Sydney, Los Angeles and London.
