Zadok Ben-David is an Israeli artist who works and lives in London. He creates sculptures and installations which focus on humans, nature and growth. The metal he uses to create his works provides a solid texture, a natural material manipulated by man. In this case iron is cut with a laser. The contrast between solid form and the void of his sculptures as well as the shadows they create is an intricate aspect of his work.
Currently showing at the Art Museum in Tel Aviv, Human Nature is a large scale installation which spans over two rooms. His figured silhouettes whose insides are formed by foliage create the illusion of a solid connectedness between man and nature. In one room Mr. Ben-David created a work with over twenty-thousand miniature trees, plants and flowers. Each piece of vegetation planted in the sand box is handmade and as in nature no two representations are the same.
Here is the artists website which has REALLY cool works:
