Master of Art Medium Wire Mesh
Drawing in Air – David Begbie transforms a light-weight steel or bronze wiremesh spectacularly into a dynamic three-dimensional figurative form. His transparent sculpture in wiremesh is as much about light as it is about substance and he transforms his seemingly inanimate machined industrial material into dynamic and evocative sculptural forms.
A ’Begbie sculpture’ is hand-sculpted and never moulded – a unique artwork with its individual character. Each Begbie sculpture is modelled using self-made tools and the wire fabric is finished by joining each intersection so that the artwork is robust and stable for posterity.
The introduction of lighting as an integral part of a particular composition has the most remarkable result. The use of projected shadows generates an optical fusion of image and object creating a whole new spacial dimension.
This website shows examples of artworks on page Mesh Sculpture, Panel Sculpture, On Paper and Projects as an inspiration what's possible. We are happy to suggest further sculpture solutions if you let us know the desired size, subject and colour. If you wonder how a "Begbie" sculpture would look in your environment we suggest to send us a photo (a snapshot will do) as well as a few dimensions of the space you envisage your new artwork. We are happy to let you suggestions providing simulated images (photoshop mock-ups).
