The ever-changing nature of beauty
“David Begbie has mastered the art of capturing the ideal human form through his technique. Each body is perfectly contoured and proportioned, and depicts a contemporary understanding of the ideal figure”.
Beauty is a two-sided coin, something that David Begbie has a clear understanding of. The nature of the material that he has adopted allows him to create a perfect exterior, an exemplary figure; yet it has a secondary function of equal importance. The permeable surface of the wire mesh allows for light to pass through it, thus casting shadows on the walls behind the sculptures. These shadows can be easily manipulated and present us with an entirely new figure to the one sculpted by the artist. Proportions can be altered and distorted; serving to remind us that beauty is constantly changing. Whilst the surface of the figure may be considered beautiful in the present, the knowledge that beauty perception is ever evolving is, clearly addressed through this transient and shifting shadow cast behind the sculpture.
Dr. Diego Giolitti
