Tim Pomeroy: Metamorphosis

10 November - 22 December 2023



The rhythm and patterns of nature form the core of our new exhibition of sculpture by Arran-based artist Tim Pomeroy. Pomeroy’s work heightens the organic geometries of the natural world, picking out and amplifying features.


There is also a human element to Pomeroy’s sculptures, in which ideas of ceremony and mysticism are explored through vessel forms and precious materials. Marble, slate, granite, clay, wood and gold are metamorphised through the process of carving, smoothing, refining. The works in this exhibition are small in scale; personal, ritual objects.


Born in Hamilton in 1957, Tim Pomeroy attended Gray’s School of Art from 1976-81 and has worked as a full-time artist since 1983, becoming one of Britain’s foremost carvers. Pomeroy’s sought-after work is included in private and public collections including The National Trust for Scotland, The National Museum of Scotland, Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, The Archdiocese of Glasgow, Gray’s School of Art, Leeds City Art Gallery, Glasgow City Council, Strathclyde University, and The Esme Fairbairn Foundation, London.
