RS Thomas Triptych by T Duffy

Do something different with your lunch hour. On Wednesday 21 May, Chamber Council member and renowned local artist, Terry Duffy will be giving free talks in the Walker Art Gallery at 1pm and 3pm about his exhibition ‘Standing Stones’.

Terry explains: “The title ‘Standing Stones’ is a metaphor for humanity. It expresses my long-term fascination with humankind’s legacy and the decisions made for good or evil by individuals, groups, societies and cultures.”

‘Standing Stones’ will features a very new and fascinating diptych ‘Somewhere between life and death we make decisions 2008’. This diptych further demonstrates Duffy’s fascination in experimenting in oils on sheer ‘hot pressed board’ which he rips away creating dynamic shapes that suggest the human form whilst retaining ambiguity.

‘Standing Stones’ will be the first of a series of exhibitions by Terry Duffy to be held at various venues in Liverpool during its year as European Capital of Culture.

‘Standing Stones’, by Liverpool-born international artist Terry Duffy, runs at the Walker Art Gallery Liverpool from 26 April to 8 June 2008.

Artists Talk: 21 May 2008 1pm & 3pm in the gallery and 1pm on 4th June. Limited places available, please call in to the Walker or call 0151 478 4199
