"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."

"It's summer here in London – our bodies may be in lockdown but our minds, our spirits and our imagination is certainly not. This is a new piece I am working on, it's a composition of three male figures.
The multiple figures are all about relationships.This sculpture here is about masculinity, talks about sticking together - as men, friends - but it has lots of other interpretations.
What do YOU think this relationship is?
That's the important bit - because sublimely it talks about relationships which are very personal interpretations from the viewer and I can see them in the sculpture when I make them and the viewer can see them because they are there in a totally transparent honest material; you can't hide anything with this, so everything is actually there!
It's what You see - it's a bit like these eye test drawings where you have coloured dots and if you're colour-blinded you can't see it but if you have normal vision you can see the picture. It sort of works on that level. On a sublimely level your read other relationships that can exist in the sculpture. "
