Terence Birch was the recipient of the 2018 Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary.

His residency with Pallant House Gallery took place from February to April 2018 at the University of Chichester.

In Terence Birch’s work, elements of class structure, consumer desire and aesthetic prejudice are explored via strategies of restriction, hindrance and limitation. Through puns and word associations, the assemblage of disparate materials and media, and the deliberate placement of ‘obstacles’ or diversions against the reception of the viewer, the overriding lack of certainty in his juxtapositions produces a palpable sense of anxiety.
