VIEW BIOGRAPHY PDF

Terry Haggerty paints lines in calibrated, monochrome color combinations on shaped wooden panels. With the simple gesture of curving the lines, he creates complex illusions that garner volume and depth. Yet, the viewer is also drawn to his paintings for their flatness and technically consummate surface perfection, which is achieved by applying multiple layers of varnish. These paintings easily toggle the dynamic pictorial space and their crafted presence, maximizing the impression of three-dimensionality.

Haggerty was born in London, England and studied at the Cheltenham School of Art, Gloucestershire. His work has been exhibited widely in galleries and museums around the world, including solo presentations at the Norton Museum of Art, West palm Beach, FL; Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth; and Hammer Museum, Los Angeles. He is the recipient of several awards including the FOR-SITE Foundation Award (2009), John Anson Kittredge Award (2003), and the NatWest Art Prize (1999). Commissions include wall drawings for AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Munich Re in London, and private collections around the world.
