======================================================= [ SE1 Direct ] http://www.London-SE1.co.uk Issue 32 | 12 December 2000 ======================================================= An email update from the Bankside Press team ======================================================= >> I N T H I S B U L L E T I N ======================================================= * Sainsbury's SE1 supermarket shock * Choral Evensong on BBC Radio 3 * Integrate, Amalgamate, Differentiate * In the London SE1 Forums ======================================================= [ Sainsbury's SE1 supermarket shock ] Talk to any resident of the South Bank and Bankside areas about the disadvantages of living in this part of Central London, and the lack of supermarkets is bound to come up. Well, the area's reputation as a supermarket-free zone could be a thing of the past if Sainsbury's carry out a redevelopment of their Stamford Street headquarters site. Last week's announcement that the supermarket group is to relocate its head office to Holborn Circus paves the way for plans to develop new office accommodation in Stamford Street, together with a 10,000sq ft Sainsbury's Central store.

Begbie basis his work on creating archetypes of beauty and physical perfection of the male/female physique. The steel mesh is moulded by hand, manipulated like clay and it is interesting to find the superb detail in some of his smaller works. His sculptures not only communicate beauty but also convey movement. Sculpted mobiles of faces seem like holographic projections, and bodies amalgamated in tableaux of 2s and 3s extended this movement in poses and shadows they create. The interesting element of shadows is essential to the design of each creation and as light glides through the steel mesh creating a doppelganger effect they reveal surprisingly more details of the figure and its classically proportioned lineaments. Begie's sculptures are aesthetically eye-catching in their beauty, dynamic construction, their proportions, and in the amazing way they incorporate shadows. They are extremely desirable and fascinating to see.
