Tim Pomeroy: Contemporary Sacred: Current Sculptures, ideas and directions

20 November - 23 December 2015

'The universe is transformation; our life is what our thoughts make it'. Marcus Aurelius

Seed-pods, flower petals, arrowheads, spindles, parachutes, Late Neolithic, early Bronze Age archaeology and Celtic Druidical grave-objects, even folded paper – the protean variety of sources on which Tim Pomeroy's sculpture seems to draw can, at first sight, appear bewildering, the range of forms they give rise to no less eclectic. Contemplate quietly though and gradually, as a line from one of his recent poems puts it, you “see the patterns in the seeming chaos.”

 

Tim Pomeroy is often referred to as Britain’s foremost stone carver with his works being included in both private and public collections such as: Gray’s School of Art, Leeds City Art Gallery, Glasgow City Council, Strathclyde University, Esme Fairbairn Foundation, London, The National Trust for Scotland, The Duke of Devonshire (Chatsworth House), The Archdiocese of Glasgow, The Dowager Countess of Cawdor, and The Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery.

This is Tim Pomeroy’s inaugural exhibition at The Fine Art Society in Edinburgh. It will be the first major show for the artist in Scotland for over a decade.
