Combining Art & Design: A Look at Sculptor Dion Horstman’s work

Dion Horstman is a sculptor who does fantastic abstract works that bear to the geometries of fractal architecture. He creates his works without the help of a computer or even a rule, with his sculptures springing more from instinct. Fractal geometry is based on the recursive patterns of nature – with smaller parts mirroring a greater whole – also found in tribal art, where repetitive geometric or fluid shapes symbolize the world around us.

Horstman basis his steel tube sculptures on cellular shapes, expanding outwards until he feels they’re finished, a type of free, premeditated design. He shines a light on the component structures to create shadows, and then these shadows get incorporated seamlessly into the piece.

His work adds a striking touch when it comes to interior designing. See below on how they look in the home.
