More than 26 years ago, Tim Cherry began discovering his expression in art as it related to his first love, wildlife, and he continues on that journey to this day. His sculpture depicts wildlife through the simplest lines, shapes, and designs without losing representation, gesture, or attitude. “I push the limits of anatomical accuracies in order to emphasize a stronger design, finding myself interpreting representational shapes and pushing them to near abstraction,” the artist says.
The artist casts primarily in bronze, but he feels his simplest and sometimes strongest designs are achieved when he sculpts for high-polish stainless steel and carving stone. The artist says he is constantly humbled by the awesome effects that are created in nature and the creatures that he observes there on a daily basis. Finding an unlimited supply of ideas within the natural world, he continues to explore those inspirations through his art every day.
Cherry has exhibited in nationally known exhibitions and galleries across the United States and in Canada, winning many prestigious awards. Several of his monumental sculptures can be found in both indoor and outdoor public and private collections. The artist was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and raised in Nelson and Prince George, British Columbia. For 26 years, he has resided in Branson, Missouri with his wife Linda, daughter Amber, and studio mate Tikka, the giant schnauzer.
“I hope to create the best possible sculpture that I can by building strong designs through shape, line, texture, and color. I want to always push my artistic boundaries to achieve what has not been done before, reaching out and experimenting with new designs and gestures — creating sculptures that are well-orchestrated, balanced, emotionally interesting, stimulating, and lyrical.” ~ Tim Cherry
