Bronzes and bronze resins.
Tom Greenshields was born in 1915, the grandson of the Victorian painter Edouard Van Goethem. He attended the Slade School of Art and it was here that he received a classical training in drawing and anatomy which was to fuel his life long artistic interest and passion in representing the human body.
Inspired by the power of work by Rodin and the movement of dancers by Degas, Tom developed an artistic style of his very own. In 1980 he lost the use of his right hand in a farming accident. Undeterred, and with great courage, he transferred his artistic skills to his left hand and went on to produce some of his finest figurative sculptures.
