This is an artwork called “Furys,” by Alan Goulbourne. Goulbourne was born in Perth Scotland and graduated as a master of fine arts from Cardiff in 2010. He showcased his work at the Al Riwaq Arts Space. He works with wood to create many 3D sculptures. He likes to make explosive pieces of art that inspires some growth and movement. In the artwork, “Furys,” he uses thousands of planks of various colors to create 3 human bodies. The bodies are sitting down and face each other in a triangular shape. On the leftmost body you can see that the dark parts are actually partially burned. Goulbourne created the artwork in 2012, 2 years after he graduated.

Here is a artwork I did showing consumerism through buying figures.
