Collection: Terry McAllister

Terry McAllister was born in Portglenone in 1964 and now lives and works in Belfast.  He received a BA in Fine Art from the University of Ulster in 1990.  

His works have been shown in group and individual exhibitions in Ireland and abroad.  These include: EVA, Limerick; ‘Open Water’ – Belfast / Bay Area, California Exchange, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Archeus Fine Art, London; ‘West’ at The Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin; ‘Heal’ at Queens University Belfast; the Royal Ulster Academy and Royal Hibernian Academy Annual Exhibitions and the Royal Academy Summer Show.  He had a solo show at the Naughton Gallery at Queens University Belfast in autumn 2015.

His work is included in the collections of the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast, South & East Belfast Trust and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, as well as private collections in the UK and abroad.

His work is landscape-based - carried out at a scale which reveals the inherent physical patterns underlying the apparently random nature of landscape composition; conferring the images with an abstract quality.  At this level, it becomes evident that these minutiae are unique, complex, intriguing and worthy of closer attention.​​
