Square Beard: Alex Allan

This is the first in a series of artist features about members of the Square Beard collective. In the interest of fairness, each artist will be presented in alphabetical order with the first being the Scottish sculptor, Alex Allan.

Alex graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2009 and currently in 2nd year of a 2 year Masters at the college. His work often flirts with themes of death, man-power, industry, architecture and the associations of social class related to these. Interestingly, many of the works involve a lot of repeated tasks and require a certain degree of man-power to get them off the ground. This similarity between his areas of research and the physical making of the work seems to be extremely important to him. ‘Kiln, Driftwood 1′ (see image above) is a great example of his method; this creation is a kiln made from abandoned bricks and a formation of driftwood made to look like a flowing cascade of water, which have been re-assembled to form a gigantic, single work.

Axolotl Gallery Partnership

We are delighted to announce that Human Resources™ are now working in partnership with Scotland’s fresh Axolotl Gallery. This means that over the next few months we will be revealing the latest competitions, exhibitions and general happenings that will be taking place at their beautiful space on Dundas Street, set in the heart of Edinburgh’s vibrant art scene.

An exciting new gallery, Axolotl focuses on figurative and narrative work in various media including painting, drawing, limited edition prints, sculpture and photography. Axolotl aims to showcase the work of emerging artists working in these genres, providing them with a suitable platform to establish themselves with a wider audience and promote their work. Although based in Scotland, Axolotl is not a ‘Scottish gallery’ in the sense of showing work of predominantly Scottish themes. While they work with many Scottish artists, the themes explored are universal in nature. The gallery will also be showing work from other emerging artists from Europe and beyond. If you would like to submit your artwork to the gallery for possible inclusion in future exhibitions, please get in touch with gallery owner Derek Butter by visiting their website.

They are about to hold their Spring Exhibition from April 3 – April 24 2010, featuring groups of work from five main artists including; Michael Wildman, Steven Hendry, Sarah Wilson, Philomena Pretsell and Jill Farquhar. As a Human Resources™ reader, we would like to invite you to attend the private view of their Spring Exhibition, which is taking place this coming Friday 2nd April. To attend, all you have to do is RSVP or accept their Facebook event invitation.
