Desire and Denial by Teresa Wells MRSS
Teresa Wells MRSS is a renowned British Sculptor who 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 emphasise a physical strength, placing them in precarious poses to stress fragility.
When combined with geometric architectural supports, in steel 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 member of The Royal Society of Sculptors, and she has clients including: Juliet Sargeant, The Blue Peter Garden, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ production of Dracula, The Robert T Webb Sculpture Garden USA, and many more.
Teresa Wells’ work has found homes in private collections both domestically and internationally.
