Artist Profile

Terry Stringer Investment Artist

Born 1946

English born Terry Stringer is acknowledged as one of the leading contemporary sculptors in New Zealand. Since studying at the Elam School of Fine Arts in 1967 under Greer Twiss, he has undertaken several public commissions, including the fountain at Aotea Square in Auckland City and, more recently, 'The World Grasped', a 2.4 metre bronze sculpture located in Newmarket, Auckland.

Working predominately in bronze, much of Stringer's sculpture depict the figure and still life subjects. In his sculpture, allusions to his interest in classical antique art and literature can be read. Influences of cubism are also displayed in the faceting and juxtaposition of form.

Throughout his career Terry Stringer has exhibited extensively, with solo shows in Auckland, Sydney, Los Angeles and London. He is represented in major public collections including the Auckland and Christchurch Art Galleries, Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa and the Alexander Turnbull Library. Terry Stringer was awarded a QEII Arts Council Grant in 1977, 1981, 1982 and 1986.
