Alan Ross

Alan works in an approach pioneered in the 1960's best defined as 'Direct Metal Sculpture' in which the metal is used as supplied rather than being cast or forged into shapes. Instead, he fabricates and assembles components to make the finished piece of art, this allows the production of large complex works which often manage to look light and delicate belying the hardness, strength and weight of the materials used.

Over time he realised that the space occupied by the sculpture is more important than it's surface and that lines can define that space. In effect similar to line drawings; he uses simple bold lines to define the space and leaves it to the viewer to fill in that space, he also came to view little details as distractions, and prefers to leave them out where possible allowing the form to take over.
