Eric and Jean Cass - Image of Jean

MIXMATCH‘ was Eric and Jean's third purchase of sculpture by David Begbie and is the smallest. They consider him to be a very exciting artist and particularly like the shadows cast by his work. Also notable is the way in which the mesh changes direction and at the same time creates changes in tone, emphasising the form of the figure. Some of their collection is available due to downsizing the art collection.

"BLEEP" The Eric and Jean Cass Collection



The collectors Eric (brother of Wilfred Cass) and Jean Cass have donated more than 300 works of Modern and contemporary art, valued at £4m to different museums. The collection was previously housed in Eric and Jean Cass’s large Modernist home (and garden) in Surrey, just outside London. It was put together by the couple over a period of 40 years, and includes sculptures, ceramics, drawings, prints and paintings by artists such as Niki de Saint Phalle, Joan Miró, Henry Moore, Eduardo Paolozzi, Pablo Picasso and Victor Pasmore.

Here is a link to an extract of "BLEEP - The Eric and jean Cass Collection" featuring home and garden including three of my steelmesh sculptures, available again: STRIPPER 1992, MIXMATCH 2000 and VENUS 1995.

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