Terry Evans was born in 1943 in Romford, Essex.
Terry started painting for self-satisfaction; his subjects were portraits, racing-cars and dogs. Terry experimented with water-colour and acrylics and then he tried oils. Terry explains that this was a turning point in his career as he found the expressive freedom of working in paint that stayed workable for days. A second breakthrough came when he used oils to paint landscapes. By popular demand, he turned professional and for many years has enjoyed run-away success.
Terry generously loads the canvas with oil paint, lavishly applied with gusto. The canvasses groan under the weight of his impasto sculptured landscapes. The penny-pinching disciplines of formal fine art training are completely unobserved.
Terry Evans' paintings are of unspoilt nature in the raw. Not even an old rotting fence-post is allowed to spoil these landscapes. Nowhere in a Terry Evans will you find a trace of Mankind.
