A newly released tabletop book is an illustrated biography of Arran artist and sculptor Tom Pomeroy and his works.
Covering from 1979 to the present day, the hardback book has 112 pages and is profusely illustrated.
The foreword is by Dave Bell, founder of the Durham Theater Company and the main essay by Nicholas Usherwood writer, art critic and curator, former exhibition secretary at the Royal Academy in London. He is the author of numerous works on artists.
The foreword to the book states: âWorking in marble, granite, sandstone and wood, the beautifully sculpted and polished work of Tim Pomeroy is a hymn to sacred forms and natural wonders.
âIt’s also a measure of his unwavering determination to learn and master the necessary skills.
His cast for St. Andrew’s Cathedral comes from his apprenticeship as a stonemason and, like the fountain of the seigneury of Provand in Glasgow, is distinctly his in form and thought: new ideas based on timeless beauty . “
It premiered in Edinburgh on November 18 at the opening of Tim’s solo exhibition with The Fine Arts Society. The exhibition runs until December 23 and many Arranachs have already visited.
Tim has another book launch at the gallery next week on Tuesday, December 14 at 11 a.m. before heading home to Arran to launch the book at the Ormidale Pavilion in Brodick on Saturday, December 18, also at 11 a.m.
Tim said: “I intend to exhibit a couple of original works at the Ormidale and talk a bit about artistic creation and how the book came about as a result of my exhibition in London l last year in the middle of the lockdown. “
It will be followed by a question-and-answer session and a book signing.
