Recent Works by Sculptor Zadok Ben David on View at Tel Aviv Museum of Art
Zadok Ben David, "Blackfield", 2007-09.


TEL AVIV.- The exhibition, extending over two halls, presents single sculptures and a sculpture installation – a selection of recent works by sculptor Zadok Ben David (born and immigrated to Israel in 1949, lives in London). The sculptures are steel cutouts of figures whose bodies are an image of boughs and foliage, or of trees whose foliage is a silhouette of human activity; sculptures that are isolated, enclosed, anonymous presences, each standing alone in space. The installation is a wide field of sand planted with 20,000 cutouts of defined, specified flowers, and its appearance transforms and astounds throughout the viewing.

Crossbreeding images of nature with descriptions of the human body, and relying on the angle of vision, are both the common denominator and the code of this cohesive group of works which is a further chapter – or an intermediate summary – of the sequence of Ben David’s work in creating ironic parallels to our various modes of perception. Exhibition and catalogue sponsored by Isracard; Michael and Felicia Crystal; Wendy Fisher; Sara Lahat; Doron and Marian Livnat; and Michael and Phyllis Rapp Zadok Ben David, Here I Am, 2006
