ALAN MCGRECHAN explores the wonder and the woundedness by crafting industrial lights that hold a raw natural aesthetic. His interest in common objects, industrial design, and natural materials help shape pieces which express the dichotomy between nature’s wonder, and the wounds of excessive consumption that have been inflicted upon the world since the industrial revolution. Many of Alan’s designs begin with a found object or by illuminating the beauty of unusual natural materials. This process results in unique and creative light designs. The use of these materials is deliberate, seeking to avoid participation in today’s abundance of waste. Alan enjoys creating art together with others. He believes every soul is electric and has light to share: ‘Art, like love, is of no use if it is kept within – when expressed, they become our exit wounds.’
