Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Today, I am posting a piece of art by Terence Coventry, exhibited in The Himalayan Garden and Sculpture Park. (Please see in a New Tab.)

I thought at first that the goat sculpture was made of wood but no, it is in bronze.

About the artist - Terence Coventry’s natural talent was recognised from an early age and he gained early admittance to Stourbridge School of Art where he was taught by Keith Leonard, who had been one of Barbara Hepworth’s studio assistants. He went on to study at the Royal College of Art but after his request to change from the painting to sculpture course was refused, Coventry left London to establish a career as a farmer on the South Cornish coast. The power behind Coventry’s sculpture is his strong affinity with the subjects he creates and his work is rooted in a strong figurative tradition. His sculpture explores the animals familiar to him from his years farming such as birds, bulls, cows and boars, eloquently capturing their ruggedness and gentleness, their movement and behaviour.

You would be forgiven for thinking this photograph was taken in Wiltshire, with Stonehenge in the background but, that is the beauty of this park, you never know what you are going to see!

Have a good week, Bev :-)
