Zircus Dix is the collective name given by Alan to the group of polychromed wood sculptures and objects he has produced in recent years. This 'imaginary circus' has comprised acrobats, mountebanks, sword-swallowers, fire-eaters, jugglers, animal and human hybrids.
The framework of Zircus Dix has allowed Alan to explore anything that interests him. For example, an interest in medieval art has allowed Alan to pick up and rework traditional themes such as love, sex, death or fate, to name a few. Or he might play with ideas of scale by using figures of different sizes for dramatic effect or to suggest importance. Sometimes Alan will use symbols or objects which carry different layers of meaning - wings or a cup or an eye, however, he rarely tries to understand them on a conscious level. Often he will use colour to heighten the final effect which can often be quirky, comic, sinister or even disturbing.
Terms and Conditions of Sculpture and/or Copyright Purchase
A sculpture remains the property of the artist until payment for that sculpture is received in full and the Purchaser is notified that the payment has been accepted as transferring ownership of the sculpture to the Purchaser. The Artist retains copyright of his work and all reproduction rights, unless copyright is purchased separately. On receipt of full payment for copyright of a sculpture, a certificate confirming the transfer of copyright and all reproduction rights will be issued in favour of the Purchaser.
Unless otherwise requested, it is understood that should a sculpture be available for purchase, the Purchaser will organize and pay for packaging, freight and insurance costs from the Artists's studio in Lower Largo, Fife, Scotland, to the Purchaser's designated address. A quotation for relocating a sculpture will be provided if requested, but no transportation arrangements will be made until both the purchase amount and the amount quoted for transportation are paid in full. Every effort is made to ensure a sculpture arrives at its destination without damage or blemish, but as the Artist is not responsible for any accident sustained in transporting the sculpture, it is recommended that the Purchaser have appropriate insurance cover in place before requesting shipment of a sculpture.
