‘Rough Cut’ is a reflection of Alan Goulbourne’s work, whereby the foundation of his practice is primarily concerned with addressing
the relationship between Science and Nature, and conjuring notions of the sublime within art that aims to signify this relationship. The
practice relies upon a process of implementing order and chaos, effectively within random sequences, in order to drive a progression
from a single moment and mark to a vast crescendo of massing marks and movements that collectively represent something simple
that is visually riddled with complexity.
