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 fractals in nature 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 organic shapes, while at the same time they display these very expressive abstract human forms… I love that my sculptures allow people to see fragments of nature, as works of art”
