Terence Coventry

Terence Coventry The sculptural work of Terence Coventry is rooted in a strong figurative tradition, and his distinctive works expore a fundamental relationship with his environment and the familiar forms of his life on the rural Lizard Peninsula.Trained at the Royal College of Art in the late 1950s, Coventry later turned his back on the art worls and spent a quarter of a century farming near Coverack in West Cornwall before returning to sculpture in 1985. Regarded as one of the country's foremost contemporary sculptors, he exhibits regularly at Gallery Pangolin, London, and as far away as New York. This 2013 New Craftsman exhibition is the first showing of Coventry's sculpture within his home county of Cornwall for over twenty years.His powerful and often huge scale, faceted sculptures of human figures, couples, horses, goats, birds, dogs, boar and cattle are works of extraordinary presence. With an eye for the essence of shape, movement and poise unique to any one creature, Coventry is able to distil his observations into pure and utterly convincing forms. Whether in motion or stillness, his sculptural works and exquisitely rendered drawings capture a visual moment that the rest of us may only register unconsciously. Constructued in steel, Cor-ten steel and bronze, both the material and subject of Coventry's sculpture are expressive of the agricultural history of both our past and present, and are a reminder of the previous relationship we hold with each other, our fellow creatures and our rural environments.
