Terrence Osborne




“Life has its way of weaving together the threads of our existence. My new body of work is a coalescing of experiences, interests and ideas. Sixty-five years of living, forty-five years of painting, thirty years teaching visual arts and history, and a strong interest since childhood in things ancient and paleolithic are the main strands in my visual journey.

Decades of painting prairie landscape focused my eye on skies and texture of land. Travels across Canada, Europe and Korea heightened my awareness of rock and stones as visual forms. Rocks have dominated my painting for three years. They served to renew my interest in the Paleolithic world, visualized through the use of earthy materials.” read more

Terrence Osborne Biography

“Life has its way of weaving together the threads of our existence. My new body of work is a coalescing of experiences, interests and ideas. Sixty-five years of living, forty-five years of painting, thirty years teaching visual arts and history, and a strong interest since childhood in things ancient and paleolithic are the main strands in my visual journey.

Decades of painting prairie landscape focused my eye on skies and texture of land. Travels across Canada, Europe and Korea heightened my awareness of rock and stones as visual forms. Rocks have dominated my painting for three years. They served to renew my interest in the Paleolithic world, visualized through the use of earthy materials.

OLD DREAMS is a personal exploration of ideas about the Stone Age which, at over three million years, is the longest period of human existence defined by a single principal technology. The paintings are divided into three groups.

Phase One: Paleo-Dreams - the long inception.
Phase Two: Rise Brilliant - the superb craft.
Phase Three: Eclipse - into art and swan song.

Certain paleolithic point styles and cultures are referenced but there is no intent to be historically accurate. Rather, the points are symbolic of a distant past when each hunter had his or her own story. OLD DREAMS is a homage to our ancient ancestors whose spirit and inventiveness allowed them to survive in their world and eventually to forge newer ones.”   (Terrence Osborne, 2016)
