Artist - Alan Faulds

Alan Faulds is a self taught sculptor who lives and works in the East Neuk of Fife and it is from there that he collects driftwood and found objects. He looks specifically or things discarded by society but which carry the signs of a past life – a bit of chair leg, a rusting creel support or a piece of window frame. On their journey these things have been shaped and altered by wind, sea or wave. Alan Faulds reinvents and shapes them into asymmetric wall sculptures to begin a new life, often with an implied narrative. The making is an intuitive process where shapes and textures are fitted and held together with a variety of techniques. Trails of thought emerge. Perhaps the beginning of a title suggests a direction. Or a remembered moment. These little simplified figures gather together as a family, a tribe, a crew or as fellow travellers referenced together by the human condition. But not without character or individuality – fat, tall or thin, reserved, indifferent, sad and funny – inscrutable. Alan Faulds has exhibited many times in the RSA galleries as well as private galleries and art fairs across the U.K. and Europe. His work is in private collections in North America, Europe and the U.K.
