Alan Meyburgh - Artist - Sculpture
Alan Meyburgh, born into a family of artists, produces natural contemporary pieces that are inspired by his passion for the outdoors and natural forms.
Alan has successfully completed a number of commissions in the Margaret River region. The most recognizable being, sculptures and functional artworks at Origins Market in Busselton, and a series of Megafauna Animals for the Margaret River Busselton Tourism Association. These pieces are situated in the main street of Margaret River, just outside the Visitors Centre, at Lake, Jewel and Mammoth Caves.
The wedge tailed eagle “swooping in for the kill” OUTSIDE Pizzica Restaurant, on the main street of Margaret River was Alan’s “pandemic project’. A progressive sculpture during the Emergence Festival held annually in the region, attracted attention. Alan took first place at the 2014 Shire of Augusta Margaret River Spring Exhibition and has been invited to be the first artist to exhibit a sculpture on the much anticipated Shire of Augusta Margaret River Sculpture Trail.
Alan has exhibited his work at outdoor exhibitions such as Cottesloe SCULPTURES BY THE SEA and SCULPTURE BY THE BAY Dunsborough, Rockingham’s Castaway, Sculpture on the Scarp, Darlington, Voyager Estate Readers and Writers Festival and many indoor exhibitions. Alan has been a part of the well established Margaret River Region Open Studios, the largest exhibition of its kind in Australia, since 2015.
Alan has appeared on television and radio in Australia, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates, for his work.
Alan loves interacting with art lovers of all kinds.
Alan Meyburgh is an artist with local and international repute, who’s designs range from intricate sculptures through complex commissioned installations. These works, created from mainly recycled media such as steel and timber, are intended to be meaningful, engaging and memorable. From his studio near Margaret River, Alan finds no shortage of inspiration from the natural bush setting that surrounds him. Tinkering away, he is often watched by the wise old black cockatoos in the trees above.
Meyburgh is what one would describe a social artist, having worked on a number of artist collaborations he thrives on getting his hands dirty on challenging commissions while working well with clients. Sculptures produced by the artist form part of the private collections in many Western Australian homes and father afield. Although he started his career producing classical realism in bronze he has incorporated this knowledge with that of contemporary and abstract sculptures and functional art. When conceptualising he places emphasis on balance, form, structure, expression of movement and of course the meaning of each piece. In addition, he is ever mindful of positive and negative space, colour, light, shadows and texture.
Over the years, Alan has been awarded many private and public commissions. To date his largest project has been for The Address Hotel, Downtown Burj Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (alongside the world’s tallest building). Here he produced seven large contemporary pieces ranging between 2.6m and 3.5m in height, both in bronze and high-gloss finished cement. His work is also proudly held in the private collections of Abu Dhabi and Dubai royal families.
