    Zadok Ben-David: From Autumn to Spring

Art: Zadok Ben David creates carpets of hand-cut aluminium sculptures

Posted by Maisie Skidmore,

Yemen-born, London-based artist Zadok Ben-David conjures up fairytale-like carpets of trees, flowers, insects and plants across gallery floors, in enchanting installations which have found their way to galleries the world over. Every piece is opposed of many – sometimes even thousands – of hand-cut aluminium sculptures, each of which is a work of art in its own right, referencing both the symbolism at the heart of his mother-country and 18th and 19th Century botanical illustration. What’s more, they’re bloody lovely.
