Alan Rutherford Artist Bio:
The contrasting nature between that of site and nonsite, space and nonspace and the point or place where they interchange and meet, can result in some highly unusual conditions. It is these conditions that give form to Alan Rutherford's art work. Site visits to Armenia, Berlin, Belfast & Cyprus have provided meaningful insights into the most extreme manifestations of such conditions, where identity has been profoundly affected and fought over. The subject matter of these places appears Alan Rutherford's paintings - religious buildings, abandoned buildings within buffer zones, road leading to ghost villages, decayed buildings left behind by fleeing families. These places also inspire the use of simple materials such as wood, rocks, stones, sand, bamboo, rope and metal to make sculpture. These insights are explored and subsequently turned into a visual language that speaks of fragmentations and divisions.
