Born in Hampshire in 1971, Adam Roud returned to live and work there after graduating from John Mores University Liverpool where he studied fine art. Initially he worked at the Morris Singer Foundry learning the process of lost wax and sand casting where some of the major figures of the last century have had their sculpture cast.
Since 2000, with a studio and workshop on Lord Portsmouth's estate, Adam has developed his work carrying out large and small sculpture commissions, figure studies and portraits.
Weight, balance, light and shadow are the core components of his work. His individual pieces are part of a timeline, an evolving group, the pieces are the resolve, evidence and product of a 3D sketch book. The figurative fuels the abstract and the abstract fuels the figurative.
