Artist’s Note: “The image is a visual metaphor that represents the separation in space that we place between ourselves and that which we bury. Underneath, within, behind, inside, below; we bury things, both physically in the world, and emotionally in the mind. The red plane contains a staircase to a doorway within a window that all represent the depth one uses to put things away.”
A.W. Terry is a visual artist/designer and poet/writer born June 25, 1982 in Dallas, Texas. His influences include everything from movements such as abstract expressionism and cubism, minds like those of Albert Einstein and George Carlin, to various natural, social, and theoretical sciences. Utilizing techniques borrowed from surrealist automatism, architectural drafting, and op art, his often dark yet colorful style is something akin to František Kupka meets Tim Burton. Terry has over 10 years experience in commercial design and is currently the Director of Operations for AAA Signs, a sign and image firm located in Richardson, Texas.
