Tim Pomeroy

[1957 - ]

Born in Hamilton Scotland in 1957, Tim Pomeroy attended Gray’s School of Art from 1976-81. He spent a short time teaching at secondary school and returned to Gray’s to lecture there for six months before establishing himself as a full-time artist in 1983, initially exhibiting works at the Edinburgh Festival. Since 1996 he has gained representation in several London, Edinburgh and Glasgow Galleries. His career has included many one-off projects principally as a sculptor but has also embraced book illustration, theatre-design and mural painting.

There have been several solo London exhibitions of his sculptural and graphic work from 1999 to the present day and his sculptures feature in several public collections. He showed with Agnew’s Gallery from 2007 to 2011  and subsequently with the Fine Art Society in both London and Edinburgh.

His most recent works are based on organic subject matter but they also reveal a real interest in fossil forms and the usefulness and beauty of man-made objects both from Neolithic and Bronze Age archaeology and from contemporary life. He embraces stone as his principal medium for its enduring and associative qualities. Traditionally, hewn-stone has been associated with the sacred or the otherworldly; cists, shrines, sarcophagi, altars, the Stone of Destiny, gravestones and obelisks.
