Project Polunin
Tuesday 14 - Saturday 18 March 2017

David-Begbie-Sculpture-CZIN-2016-webPolunin-Life-Sculpt-invite-17

CZIN 2016 – a male back sculpture, freestanding on metal base, black finished steelmesh, 75cm height. Above image opens more photographs.
This latest steelmesh sculpture is one of the recent series of single figurative forms both male and female whose subjects are contemporary archetypal expressions of masculine and feminine. CZIN has a particular poise and posture expressing fitness, strength and balance often witnessed in the discipline of contemporary dance and ballet.

CZIN will be my donation for the Online Auction for The Project Polunin Gala(online lots for Project Polunin here).
