GALLERY DIFFERENT (Shad Thames) moved to London Fitzrovia
DIFFERENTâ??s new permanent gallery moved to 14 Percy Street W1T 1DR, London Fitzrovia in June 2011. The gallery occupies in excess of 2000 square feet over the ground floor and basement of a Grade II listed Georgian building and is only 3 minutes walk from Goodge Street underground station. The exhibition features permanently unique and editioned sculpture by David Begbie as well as British and international artists.

David Begbie discovered the particular properties of steelmesh as an art student in 1977. Since then his work has been exhibited globally and has been an enormous inspiration to many people, including architects, designers, photographers, world of theatre and dance and collectors as well as to other artists and his work has been imitated and copied worldwide.

He is the master of his medium and his work speaks for itself. The mesh is transparent â?? 90% thin air, yet it has as a much greater physical presence than any conventional solid form. Begbieâ??s skill, perception, understanding and imagination are succinctly and economically contained within the confines of the simple shell that constitutes his sculpture. Look again closely and you see that there is not even a skin, only a graphic delineation of one. In relation to the space it occupies, the catalytic effect a Begbie sculpture has, in any setting, given that it has no palpable substance or surface, is phenomenal. The introduction of strategic lighting as an integral part of a particular composition has the most remarkable result where the combination of two and three dimensions, with the use of projected shadows, produces an optical fusion of image and object. It is from this phenomenon that Begbie developed his flat steel panel sculptures, the first of which he named â??Shadow Seriesâ? and which are available in fine art limited editions. Begbie envisaged these works as existing and occupying a space between the three dimensional sculpture and the shadow itself, and in the process has created another new art form.

British and international artists
The gallery has previously concentrated on the promotion of its principal artist, sculptor David Begbie, but with its new expanded space is committed to showing contemporary artists from the UK and from around the world including both established artists and emerging talent.
