Biography / CV of Alan JackAlan has been making things since he was a child. Born in the Midlands in 1940, he grew up fascinated by the mechanics of machinery, his mind forever enquiring into how things were assembled and how they worked. Although Alan had no formal art training, he developed his metal-handling skills through a tool-making apprenticeship follwoed by service as an airframe fitter in the Royal Air Force.
A profound admiration for the craftmanship of the early blacksmiths has encouraged Alan to study and collect a wide range of old tools and metal devices. Farm machinery, car and motoercycle parts, household utensils, frequently gathers when repairing and renovating equipment, all play a part in his sculpture.
But it is his deep love of nature, and especially of birds and insects, which manifests itself most stronly in Alans orginal sculptures. A keen conservationist, he has created forms which depict all aspects of wildlife. His fertile imagination has brough to life a variety of creatures constructed from found metal objects demonstrating both his his of his subject and of his media.
