About the artwork
David Begbie's work captures the very essence of human body, celebrating human nature in its most elaborate perfection. His work resembles Greek sculptures in its mastery of proportions, in the finesse of musculature and aesthetic completeness of human form. Through the use of steel mesh, the artist creates a dialogue between material and immaterial, playing with negative space and shadows to give the sculptures its uniqueness: powerful yet fragile and sensual.
