Terry Whybrow

Has always been concerned with the stillness of the image whether in still life or totally abstract. If a painting does not sit quietly, and the contents are not in harmony, then it doesn't work. His current work may be seen as still life, but it is a means of using forms, pots, apples, for example, where they sit and overlap, complement and coalesce one with another to create harmony. On settling in Cornwall nearly 25 years ago he was influenced by the landscape, sea and textures of the environment and explored the visual images in an abstract way. Having travelled through figuration, abstraction and back, the same objectives remain – harmony and silence. Terry Whybrow was born in St Pancras, London. He died at home in St Ives in 2020.
