Terence Coventry

1938 - 2017

Terence Coventry studied at Stourbridge School of Art and the Royal College, London.

Very much ‘hands on’, Coventry made his sculpture not in a traditional artist’s studio but in a workshop akin to that of an engineer or blacksmith. Rooted in a strong figurative tradition, his sculpture exists in spite of any vagaries or trends in the art world and is an intensely personal art, practical and unpretentious, honest and imbued with great integrity. Always taking his inspiration from the natural world, the way in which he deftly transformed an assemblage of shapes into a familiar bird, beast or body, is part of the magic of his art.

The Terence Coventry Sculpture Park is a short walk to the south of Coverack in Cornwall. Contained in three small meadows astride the old coast path. There are usually around twenty  five monumental sculptures on display.

The artists former residence, a secluded bungalow on the outskirts of Coverack, surrounded by 2 large gardens which feed out onto the Sculpture park is available to hire, for further information click here.
