Tim Pomeroy b. 1957
Born in Hamilton, Scotland in 1957, Tim Pomeroy attended Gray’s School of Art from 1976-81. After a short spell secondary school teaching, he returned to lecture there for six months before setting up as a full-time artist in 1983. After his spell lecturing he exhibited artworks initially at the Edinburgh Festivals 1981 -1991 but since 1996 has gained representation in several London, Edinburgh and Glasgow Galleries.
His career has included several one -off projects principally as a sculptor but has also embraced book illustration, theatre-design and mural painting. He has had a number of solo London exhibitions of his sculptural and graphic work from 1999 to present day and his sculptures feature in several public collections. He showed with Agnews Gallery from 2007 to 2011.
His most recent works are based on organic subject matters, eggs, seeds, but they also reveal a real interest in fossil forms and the usefulness and beauty of man-made objects both from historical and from contemporary life. He embraces stone as his principal medium because of its enduring and associative qualities. Hewn-stone he believes, was always traditionally associated with the sacred or the otherworldly. Tim Pomeroy’s sculptures attempt to contain something of this essence.
