About "Mother's Love"
Artist: David Gopito
Generation: Third Generation Sculptor
David Gopito, born in 1946 in Mutare, Zimbabwe, is married and has four children. He attended St. Webecks School and left after completing standard six. He now lives in Chitungwiza.
After leaving school he helped his brother who was a wood and stone carver in Mutare. In 1970, he went to Victoria Falls and joined the Forest Craft Village. Today, after having branched into producing unique pieces of sculpture, David works as part of a prominent sculpture community.
David prefers to work in harder stones such as Verdite, Golden Serpentine and Serpentine. His sculpture is elegantly finished and he spends time ensuring they are well polished. David produces semi abstract pieces exploring subjects pertaining to human experience and emotion. He appreciates subjects such as the special relationship between a mother and newborn baby/child as well as the growth of a foetus and often expresses these interests in his sculpture. David´s work is characterised by rounded lines and is extremely tactile.
David is a fine third generation Contemporary Sculptor who has participated in several group exhibitions worldwide and has become increasingly popular over the years.
