Terry Stringer is recognised as one of New Zealand’s leading sculptors. While well known due to his public installations, most of Stringer’s work is done on a smaller domestic scale.
Born in Cornwall, England in 1946, Stringer trained at Elam School of Fine Arts at the University of Auckland. He graduated with Honours in 1967 and in the following years received virtually every significant scholarship and award available to New Zealand artists.
Working predominately in bronze, the majority of Stringer’s sculptures depict figures and still-life subjects. Allusions to his interest in classical antique art and literature can be seen, along with the influence of cubism displayed in Stringer’s faceting and juxtaposition of form.
Stringer is represented in all major public and many private New Zealand collections.
