Terry Stringer is widely recognized as one of New Zealand’s leading sculptors.
For decades sculptor Terry Stringer has explored the transformation of abstract ideas into concrete forms, ways in which a figure can occupy space, and how still forms can express movement. His works appear to be in a state of continual transition, the edges deliberately blurred so that each aspect morphs into another imperceptibly.
Stringer’s sculptures fill space in a way that manipulates rather than occupies using similar methods to those first explored by the Cubists in the early 1900’s. Stringer delights in creating spatial illusions, testing the dividing line between the real and imagined.
Stringer unites multiple elements into a singular sculpture, drawing inspiration from artistic and literary sources. His work encourages the viewer to explore the series of subjects within one sculpture from different perspectives, providing a truly multi-faceted experience.
Throughout his long career, Stringer has exhibited extensively, with solo shows in New Zealand, Sydney, Los Angeles and London.
