Aerorganic Sculpture | Adam Warwick Hall.
Fascinated by aircraft, animals and plants from an early age, Adam trained as a sculptor from 1989 to 1991. On graduating he immediately started work as a sculptor and model maker for the Film and TV industry at Shepperton and Pinewood Studios.
He then progressed to specialist work with Exhibition and Aerospace companies creating one-off pieces which other trades were not able to make due to their complex curves and diverse materials.
In 2010, after twenty years of making all types of shapes and forms in a range of materials for a wide variety of people and companies, Adam set up his own studio near Bristol.
Inspired by aerodynamic, organic and animal forms his work as an artist has always been a mixture of biology and mechanisation. Adam’s love of aerodynamic forms fuels his concepts; fusing mechanised structures with organic forms to create his pieces. http://www.aerorganic.co.uk/
Herringkel Mk 2 – Bronze, ( 7 of 12 ) in a limited edition of 12 was the third sculpture in my AERORGANIC series , each has a different patina or polished finish and a specific stone, metal or wooden base. This came as a development of my AERORGANIC idea, a meld of machine and organism, thinking of perhaps some machines grew rather than were made. This is a cross between a Herring and a Heinkel 111 ( a World War Two German Bomber aircraft) and it rests somewhere in the middle, swimming the high seas or flying in low cloud. This example has seen its day and its carcass has degraded , only to found by us, corroded and yet its form is still recognisable.

Fork Tailed Devil is growing up from the ground and beginning to emerge and unfold its wings before taking flight .A melange between aeroplane, plant and animal, not yet fully formed but still taking shape.Or perhaps a homage to the gods of sky, sea and earth from a long disappeared Cargo Cult. I try to find a balance between the ancient and the new, aeroplanes and organic forms, it is a constant search that I cannot seem as yet to perfect but it is more important to travel than to arrive. The 12th in my AEROR
GANIC series, this is the 1st of 4 versions-Bronze in a limited edition
