His latest collection includes a picture called ‘Ice Cube Dreams’ in which a bodybuilding ice cube looks longingly at a picture of the Titanic.
The 45-year-old said his peculiar talent came naturally and he had always seen objects differently.
"I used to make larger pieces, more abstract ones but I discovered that wasn’t my strength. I started working smaller with wire and then I started incorporating objects to make things more interesting and using my humour, which I’m the first to admit is rather twisted."
"I always knew that my weird point of view was my gift or perhaps curse, so I’m glad I finally found a use for it", Terry said. "As far as getting ideas, I simply try to amuse myself. I look at objects and wonder what they remind me of and then I create a sort of story about that. I have a good sense of humour. I like to laugh but I can’t tell a joke to save my life."
