Terence Coventry: Hands Onby Tom Flynn
Specially published to accompany our exhibition, this book is an in-depth account of an intensely private artist’s life and work. The book traces his journey over the past twenty-five years from talented art student to successful pig farmer, to the rediscovery of his artistic identity in the mid-eighties and the evolution of his mature, confident and independent sculptural language. Tom Flynn’s perceptive introduction provides a fascinating insight into Coventry’s working practice and the way in which the Cornish landscape and its natural inhabitants have influenced his creative development.
