Rough Cut
By Alan Goulboune
Al Riwaq Art Space, Bahrain
29 April

‘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.

Allan Goulboune - Cardiff based artist born in Perth, Scotland graduated from Uwic in 2008, had early success with a Commission at
Chapter and a short-listing for the Jerwood Sculpture Prize.  Alan graduated with an MFA from Uwic in 2010.  He has exhibited twice at
Tactile Bosch for the Teunre group show and more recently The Open West exhibition, who commissioned Alan for the Hesters Way
Community art project.  Currently, Artist is in Residence at Al Riwaq Art Gallery (Bahrain) for a period of three months.
