About this Item

South African 1944-
Game Piece I
wood on a concrete base
height: 81,5cm including base, 75,5cm excluding base


Together these two sculptural pieces by Henry Davies show the artist’s impressive stylistic scope: dominant forms might be sky-reaching, stylised and organic like those of Flowerbox, or rigid, calculated and hard-edged like those that fix together Game Piece I. Both works show the artist’s attention to detail, his technical care and his imagination while, with the output in mind from the likes of Peter Schütz, Keith Alexander and Jeremy Wafer (all of them contemporaries or students of Davies), they also give an indication of his significant influence.
