David Begbie's Mesh Bodies

January 28, 2014

David Begbie is an internationally reknowned sculptor who creates bodies from woven metal mesh or panel that create an incredibly lifelike phenomenon of shadow-play. His structures have an astounding physical presence, more ethereal than any solid form and more structured and authoritative than the diaphanous material itself. Having mastered such a unique medium, he is able to evoke the nuances of the organic body with an entirely incongruous material.
