The Art Squirrel

Terry & Tim

posted Feb 27, 05:07 AM by Carl Lykert

While in New Zealand in January Tim and I drove from Wellington to Auckland where we had the great pleasure of lazing in hot baths in Tokaanu, driving along the gorgeous Lake Taupo and experiencing the incredible thermal pools at Waiotapu, while taking in the almost gothic North Island landscape

At our destination of Auckland we stayed with sculptor Terry Stringer and his partner, also called Tim, who live in their very own sculpture park called Zealandia which they open to the public. The house itself seems more like a piece of sculpture, and the sculptures throughout the property give the visitor the sense they have stepped into some other world

The grounds and main foyer are mostly populated by Terry’s sculptures, although there are works by other New Zealand artists such as sculptor Chris Booth and Tim’s brother, painter & sculptor, Richard McWhannell. In Tim & Terry’s sitting room and bedroom, the feeling is quite different, with an eclectic collection of paintings and objects often with quite a theatrical bent
