Galleries: Terry Hooley

Terry Hooley: "I have always been fascinated and received great pleasure from creating “things” ever since I was a young boy. I am a self-taught “artist” with a passion for material experimentation and interaction. I utilize anything that is sensually stimulating, but predominately use wood because of its flexibility and natural warmth.

"Inspiration can be anything from Architecture, film, Ancient Civilizations, both factual and fictional, personal experiences, to the vast wealth of natural sources; but usually ‘from small acorns grow…’ as I derive great pleasure from developing and expanding upon a project once the seed has formed.

"At the moment I am concentrating on the development of my Sculptural clocks, combining form with function, which I have put under the broad title of ‘Concepts in Time’.

"In the past I have received mainly private commissions, selling my work in this country and as far afield as Egypt, Kenya, America and Australia. I live, and have my workshop, in Winthorpe - two miles up the coast from Skegness."
