Timothy Talbott Holmes
Timothy Talbott Holmes, (Londres, GB) like many of the masters, moved to the Languedoc region of southern France in 1994 to benefit from the translucent natural light and draw inspiration from the beautiful Mediterranean. He sculpts full-time in his studio in Usclas du Bosc, a 12th century village on the pilgrimage route of St. Jacques de Compostella.
“I am continually stimulated by the beauty of the curve and the sensuality of a simple line; it is an ongoing challenge to look and feel with my heart and not with my head. This is essential in creating work which has soul; sculpture that has the power to touch; the power to open a conversation with the viewer.”
Tim uses a variety of local woods including cypress, cedar, chestnut and boxwood; He is captivated by their varying textures and scents. All of his wood sculptures are cast into bronze limited editions. He studied at The Chelsea School of Art and Design in London and the John Makepeace School for Craftsmen in Beaminster, England. He did an apprenticeship in aeronautical engineering at British Aerospace. His work has been exhibited numerous museums throughout the world including: The Hanak Museum (Vienna, Austria), The Orangery (Holland Park, London), The Royal Society of British Sculptors (South Kensington, London), Carrefour des Trois Fontaines (Montpellier, France), Foyer Rural de la Culture et de l’Art (Les Salces, France), L’Art du Maison, (Brussels, Blegium), Royal Botanical Gardens (Ontario, Canada), Lancashire County Museum, (Preston, Lancashire). He lives and works in Languedoc, France.
