A limited edition print run of 10 by artist Terence Wilde
Terence Wilde describes creativity “as a healing tool, emotionally to describe, spirituality to make sense of and occupationally to work alongside.’
Wilde draws on his own mental health journey from the perspective of an adult survivor. Alongside his interest in design and colour, Wilde makes a lot of black and white work, particularly pen drawings and ceramic based radical crafts. These are responses to situations and what he considers to be his life’s work; using personal experience to express struggles, fears and dreams. Wilde’s visual language helps to convey a sense of history and reality to the present moment.
Wilde is a visual artist based in London. He studied at Winchester School of Art, graduating in 1986 with a first class degree in Textiles. Terence worked as a fashion print designer in the west end for many years before retraining through Croydon’s voluntary mental health services as an art group facilitator. He currently teaches art, pottery and textiles within the occupational therapy department at the Bethlem Royal Hospital.
