Teresa Wells MRSS Bio and Statement
Teresa Wells MRSS creates emotive figurative sculptures in bronze, that celebrate man’s physical and emotional survival over adversity.
Inspired by the question “How do Humans Behave?” she draws inspiration from the contours of athletes and ballet dancers to emphasize a physical strength, placing them in precarious poses to stress fragility.
She employs an illustrative style that pertains to theatrical gesturing, with particular attention made in re-creating detail in the face, hands and feet. This creates a powerful and spiritual force, producing reflection on one’s own psyche. When combined with geometric architectural supports, in steel, bronze and stone, she shows a contemporary approach to bronze, lifting it off the plinth and making it appear less monumental and traditional.
Teresa is a multi award winning member of The Royal Society of Sculptors, and has had work commissioned by the BBC and Netflix amongst others. She is available for public and private commissions, interiors, landscape and garden sculpture.
