Zadok Ben-David

Life and death in nature.


'A graphically stunning opposition between the Edenic and the ashen, promise and aftermath — and ultimately life and death’

- Los Angeles Times (for Blackfield)

Presented in association with Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery

Take a closer look – things aren’t always quite what they seem.

A suspended circle hovering above comes to life under UV light to celebrate the rhythmic beauty of nature. A field of miniature plants resembles a bushfire-ravaged landscape, only to reveal new life.

The Other Side of Midnight and Blackfield are two breathtaking installations, each made up of many thousands of individual pieces, that have been wowing audiences all over the world. They form the centrepiece of this exhibition by prominent Yemen-born, London-based artist Zadok Ben-David. Human Nature brings optimism and a touch of magic to issues such as our relationship to nature and our view of life and death.
