'Godolphin' Bronze Horse by Deborah van der Beek

A beautiful bronze horse, made by Deborah van der Beek in the early 2000s.

'Godolphin' signed DvdB and numbered 2/9 on the underneath.

Van der Beek studied art, first in London and Cambridge. Then in Cardiff in the early 1970s, she complemented what would be a lifelong compulsion to draw in the liferoom with an urge to make solid form. During the next 25 years or so van der Beek used her drawing skills illustrating (and latterly, also writing) children’s books. Deborah's career as a sculptor came to fruition in the late 1990s, when she started attending life sculpture classes taught by Sue Larner at Widcombe Studios in Bath.

Her bronze pieces have an intense, Giacometti-like cragginess that requires expert foundry casting. The intricate surfaces, open to space and light, that seem to invade or erode solid form, tell the story of their making.
