Aggie Zed Contemporary Ceramic Figural Sculpture of Boxman 1990s
Aggie Zed Contemporary Ceramic Figural Sculpture of "Boxman," 1990s, the seated nude figure with his legs stretched out in front his torso, his arms bent at the elbows and wrists, painted realistically, with a grey-black box painted grey-black.
4" H. x 4 3/8" W. x 4 1/2" D.
Made in the 1990s.
Condition: Excellent condition, as sold. Most of Zed's detailed figural works are hand-built, thus there are rough patches and firing cracks at dense areas of the bodies, as manufactured.
Provenance: From the collection of a New York collector.
Aggie Zed's work combines strong representational figural work at a small scale, together with sometimes fantastical combinations of human and animal forms. Where most of her human figures have the heads of an animal, this is a rare presentation of a male form with a perforated box on his head.
Working with two private collectors, each of whom had collected Zed figures, I have a large group of the artist's work. For those entranced with the notion of human-animal interaction, Zed's work presents a unique opportunity to create a grouping in a small space.
