Tim Pomeroy, who lives and works on the Isle of Arran, attended Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen, 1976–81. His sculpture is very diverse in its subject and style, material and technique. He carves in marble, slate, granite and sandstone from his island home, and his drawings and etchings are part of the overall process. He is interested in the usefulness and beauty of manmade objects, both from Neolithic and bronze age archaeology and from contemporary life.
Tim has had several public commissions, notably in Provand’s Lordship Glasgow in 1995 and the Beatson Gartnavel Hospital in 2008. His most recent commissions are in St Andrews Roman Catholic Cathedral, Glasgow, where he carved a new baptismal font in 2011. In the same year, he carved a monumental bas-relief on the façade of Carnoustie Golf Links Trust Pro-Centre and concurrently made a huge bronze illustrating the Tree of Life for Cawdor Castle Gardens, Nairnshire. His work features in the collections of, amongst others, Strathclyde University, Leeds City Art Gallery, The Duke of Devonshire, Gray’s School of Art, Lady Cawdor and the Archdiocese of Glasgow.
