The title of Terence's show is quite ambiguous and that is exactly what he wanted. For Terence, it references a multitude of thoughts and feelings: unfortunately, due to the high quality and number of entries this year we are unable to include your work in the show; unfortunately, you need to go back to shielding as a vulnerable person due to covid-19; if I’d have had a fortunate childhood, maybe I wouldn’t be doing art and I certainly wouldn’t be the person I have become today.

Join me on a journey as we explore the two worlds of artist and adult survivor Terence Wilde, who uses his art practice as his own form of therapy. For him, it is a distraction, a method of calming and a daily occurrence that keeps him grounded. His creativity runs parallel to his mental health. We will look at his brilliantly colourful works alongside his more poignant black and white works, and his ceramic pieces.
Terence recently said, “Through my art I lose myself and in the process, discover who I am. Art is a healing tool that helps me to survive as a person.”
