New Sculptures

ZADOK BEN-DAVID (born 1949, lives and works in London & Tel-Aviv) is one of Israel?s premier living artists, despite dividing his time between Israel and a large studio in London. His recent exhibition Human Nature at the museum in Tel-Aviv ended in February breaking all attendance records in the museums thirty-year history ? an extraordinary feat.

The installation Blackfields which began at Annandale in 2008 with over 6000 works had grown to 20,000 pieces at the museum. There were also several rooms of new sculpture. Ben-David?s last show at Annandale in 2008 also broke all the attendance records in our twenty-year history with over 10,000 visitors.

Ben-David is also well known for his large-scale installations in London, Singapore, China and Europe with sculptures sometimes reaching eight metres in height.

The new exhibition features small stainless steel sculptures mounted in perspex boxes in groups from one to five pieces including some new magnificent round trees and his signature ?innerscape? and ?tree? men done in rust colour for the first time and his more conventional black. There will also be some previously unseen ?flower boxes? from the Blackfields series

The works are incredibly fine and detailed in stainless steel. Mounting them in Perspex boxes according to the artists specifications give the works elegance and the grouping of the works allows a kind of narrative to take place that is mesmerizing for the viewer.

Do not miss this opportunity to see the latest works by ZADOK BEN-DAVID, an artist who has had a considerable impact on art and artists in Australia since he began exhibiting at Annandale in 1990.
