Terry Setch studied at Sutton and Cheam School of Art, 1950-54 and Slade School of Fine Art 1956-60.
He lives in Penarth, Wales and draws inspiration from his surroundings. Employing diverse materials, he explores the tensions between society and the natural world. The painted surfaces of his large scale works are often amplified with found matter, which articulates an atmosphere of elemental and emotional turmoil.
Although Setch’s small scale paintings, prints and drawings are more literal, they are rooted in the same Romantic tradition.
