Teresa Wells Sculptor

Bio and Statement Teresa Wells MRSS Inspired by a moral upbringing, I possess an ethical consciousness along with a fascination for the question, “How do Humans Behave?” Through the medium of sculpture I explore the tenuous relationship between man and his society. Isolation, miscommunication, fragility and strength are most attractive. There is a need for me to express this in ways that invite shared experience. Employing an illustrative baroque style in the creation of the human form, I offset emotional and theatrical posturing against strong geometric steel shapes to reflect man’s strength in overcoming adversity. I obtained a first class honors degree in Fine Art from Nottingham Trent University, 1996, and undertook postgraduate studies at Loughborough University, where my tutors included John Atkin FRBS and Dan Archer FRBS. I have worked on large-scale sculptures 4 meters high and at a more intimate scale 30 cm in mixed media. Inspiration comes from the dynamic movements and resulting shapes produced by the human body particularly from athletes and dancers. Currently working in bronze I like to place figurative forms in precarious positions using strong geometric steel shapes as supports. A multi award-winning sculptor (‘Mind Body Spirit’ International Art – Competition.net, Best in show, APT Deptford 2015, by Richard Deacon CBE), I sell through various gallery platforms in the UK, The Netherlands, Singapore and USA and work also to commission. More recently I was commissioned by BBC1 and Netflix to produce a sculpture (I Spirit), for the highly acclaimed drama entitled ‘Dracula’, which went on to feature in “I Weekend” with work by Barbara Hepworth and Banksy. In June 2021 I also won Gold Medal at Blenheim Flower show with Oxford Garden Design Company Clients include the BBC, Netflix, ‘The Robert T. Webb Sculpture Park’, (permanent collection), Georgia, USA, international ar
