Native sculptures

Since 1997 Peter Syndicas’ sculptures have been inspired by his fascination with organic shapes in their simplest forms – fractals of nature. Twigs – fragile, precious, shaped by the elements. Delicately carved, the revealed forms are translated on a magnified scale and immortalised in bronze, steel or stone – a stark contrast to their fragile nature.

“I search specifically for twigs that portray a human figure as it gives each sculpture of mine a unique duality. On the one hand they are magnified reproductions of fragile twigs, while at the same time they display these very expressive abstract human forms… I love that my sculptures allow people to see fragments of plant life, as works of art”

“2017 marks 20 years since I began studying the human form by looking at trees. Over these years I have explored many new mediums and techniques, but the one thing that has never changed is my total fascination and adoration of these simple organic figurative forms.”
