Hand-sculpted figurative art made out of a single sheet of bronze or steel mesh.
A ’Begbie sculpture’ is never moulded – a unique semi-transparent artwork with its own character.
Each wire sculpture is modelled using very own (self-made) tools and ’fixed’ joining each wire intersection, so that the artwork is robust and stable.

Fine Art Gallery Contini Contemporary, UK and Italy, about this sculpture:

"Masculinity and femininity, positive and negative, matter and antimatter, light and dark: The artist of the light and the shadow.
David Begbie transparent sculpture is as much about light as it is about substance. The introduction of strategic lighting creates optical compositions of line and form, and each transparent sculpture has a greater palpable presence than the space, which it occupies.
David Begbie is one of the most influent sculptor in England with solo shows in four continents, works being collected by many museums as well as an extensive list of public and private commissions."

Most of my sculptures are made from a single rectangle of wiremesh with nothing added and nothing taken away. The material is simply transformed.
