Fascinated by aircraft, animals and plants from an early age, Adam trained as a sculptor from 1988 to 1991. On graduating he immediately started work as a sculptor and model maker for the Film and TV industry at Shepperton and Pinewood Studios. He then progressed to specialist work with Exhibition and Aerospace companies creating one-off pieces which other trades were not able to make due to their complex curves and diverse materials.
In 2010, after twenty years of making all types of shapes and forms in a range of materials for a wide variety of people and companies, Adam set up his own studio near Bristol. Inspired by aerodynamic, organic and animal forms his work as an artist has always been a mixture of biology and mechanisation. Adam’s love of aerodynamic forms fuels his concepts; fusing mechanised structures with organic forms to create his pieces.
Working from his studio, using industrial metal construction and fabrication techniques, as well as traditional casting methods in bronze and steel, Adam sculpts, models and carves a broad selection of materials to create ‘the Aerorganic forms that reflect the aviation based world we know, now mixed with half remembered ancient organic forms and dreams of another possible future .Perhaps I reflect the world as a Cargo Cult may, striving to make sculptures that represent the strange mechanised birds, plants and animals that are seen from afar.”
He works in several disciplines at once, carving in wax to be cast in bronze or steel, stopping to view the progression of pieces and then moving to direct construction in steel, copper and iron.
Editions of the cast work are available, as well as original constructed sculptures and commissions may be undertaken depending on workload and time of year.
Exhibiting in galleries in Mayfair, Horsham, Chichester, Canterbury, Stow on the Wold and Bristol.
Exhibited at Art Fairs in San Sebastian, Battersea, Tunbridge Wells, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Cambridge, Brighton and Bristol.
