About the Artist
Diana Terry was born, lives and works in Greater Manchester.
"For me, the human presence is the starting point of art. My artwork is about the landscape, considering the narrative between humanity and the environment by recording the impact of quarries in my area. Recently in Lockdown I have become aware of these scars in the landscape left from the Industrial Revolution.
As a result my work is becoming more abstract and critically engaged. moving away from a representational approach. These colourful, vibrant textured surfaces resonates with the land, evoking the deep geological memories ingrained in the rocks and hills of the Pennines.
My first degree was in ceramics at Manchester Polytechnic. I taught ceramics and three dimensional design for over thirty years in further and higher education. For several years I shared a studio with Majolica Works in the Northern Quarter, Manchester. Although attracted to materiality I decided to develop my research in drawing and painting full time over five years ago."
Diana's work is in private and public collections from Inverness to Cornwall and also the USA and New Zealand.
