‘In a contemporary world, the reproduction of images has now become a trivial exercise by anyone with access to a camera, photocopier or computer. I, therefore, relish the special irony of using the mezzotint technique, a laborious printmaking process, to represent ubiquitous items such as containers used in the fast-food industry. Such items are reproduced in their millions, are familiar to countless people throughout the world, and unseen by most.’
Terence began a 43-year career in the NSW Public Service, firstly as a Survey Draughtsman, in the Registrar-General’s Department Sydney, then as an Inspector with the Public Service Board and Health. During this period he obtained tertiary qualifications in Public Administration and Business at the Institute of Technology – now University of Technology Sydney.
He retired and commenced full-time studies at the Sydney College of the Arts, a college within the University of Sydney, majoring in Printmaking.
Terrence and his wife Denise have been married for 61 years. They have 3 children and 6 grandchildren. For the last 54 years, they have lived in the same house in the leafy Sydney suburb of Wahroonga, where Terence has a studio and press at the rear of the garage.
