Aggie Zed Fishman Contemporary Ceramic Figural Sculpture 1990s
Aggie Zed Contemporary Ceramic Figural Sculpture of Fishman
Figure of a nude male, kneeling /seated on his ankles, his arms bent and one upraised, both with fingers extended, with a realistically-modelled and enamelled figure of a cod in his lap
4"H. x 4" W. x 3" D.
Made between 1999-2003.
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.
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 fully-realized cod fish.
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.
