One of Britain`s leading wildlife sculptors, Adam Binder has a signature fluid style of simple lines and flowing forms depicting both movement and emotion that beautifully captures the essence of his subjects.
Adam Binder grew up on a farm in the picturesque surroundings of the Cotswolds, where he continues to live today. It is a place he holds dear, as it was growing up in this idyllic environment that awakened his senses to the beauty and wonder of the natural world, which has been the inspiration for his art for the last 20 years.
Adam’s own statements on his artistic inspirations:
“Nature is a wonder and a joy to observe, and it is through my sculpture that I endeavour to connect further with wildlife and capture the character of my subject. While I`m sculpting I feel like I`m engaging with the spirit of the animal, an insight only afforded to those who seek the essence of its soul, subtle movement and suggestion in body language.”
“For me nature and sculpture are the perfect marriage. I see repetition in form, line, mass and detail throughout the natural world, sculpted over time but in perfect harmony. Conscious of these patterns the concept for a sculpture becomes active in my mind`s eye and only when the composition, balance and emotion is clear do I begin to sculpt. I want to portray the simplicity of form, smooth flowing lines, natural rhythm and, in doing so, free the eye to engage in the detail.”
“Nature is my passion and my constant distraction.”
