Beverley Drury – Baboon on Board

Original, Sculpture | 10 × 30 × 30 cm | Freestanding


Out of stock

ARTWORK DESCRIPTION: Beverley closely watched the activities of Chacma baboons across Southern Africa and as a result she created this piece. This study of a baby and adult baboon shows wire at its most expressive, flowing between and uniting two forms. The sculpture demonstrates this closeness as a baby nonchalantly perches on its parent, who in turn accommodates the needs of them both.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Beverley has been wrangling wire into representations of wildlife for over 10 years. She lives in rural Kent amidst fruit orchards and vineyards. Beverley’s sculptures are created from a combination of upcycled and new wire of many different kinds. Each of her sculptures is unique and Beverley’s aim is to capture a fleeting pose, behaviour and character of her subject matter.

DIMENSIONS: 10 x 30 x 30 cm x 1 kg
