How are these sculptures made?
The magic of these pieces is the illusion that they are living beings that have a life of their own.
Adam’s challenge is to find a balance between the natural and the anatomical forms which unifies the character. The sculptures usually begin in one of two ways. Either Adam is inspired by the form and texture of a natural object which guides the concept of the piece or he has a specific concept he wants to communicate and finds natural objects that fit the theme and form he dictates.
Are the sculptures strong?
Yes! The sculptures are very strong. The main material is oak with steel reinforcement throughout. All of the natural elements have been preserved and strengthened through a variety of means specific to each type of object. The sculpting compound created by the artist to unify the natural elements is very strong and flexible. The very first experiments conducted decades ago in these materials were intended to be ephemeral and decay quickly. Instead they have lasted with no discernible change and Adam now makes efforts to ensure that all the contemporary works will last indefinitely.
What are the sculptures about?
Adam Long’s sculptures explore the intersections of humankind and the natural world. He asks: What does it mean to be human in a natural environment? What would it feel like to be a closer part of nature?
