TSA_ART_DION_HORSTMANS_POLAR_VORTEX_OCT14_03POLAR VORTEX by Dion Horstmans opened last night at He Made She Made gallery, as part of Art and About Sydney.

A new sculpture series in steel, chrome and folded metal express ‘intense cyclonic cell studies’ in Horstmans’ signature geometric language, this time presented at a smaller scale than previously showcased works.

Referencing architecture, geographic phenomena and atomic structure, Horsmans is renowned for minimalist 3D wall sculptures that can be customised by size, and finished in Powdercoat colour, or zinc, chrome or copper.

Reaching the final selection of the Prometheus Art Prize in 2011, Dion’s MOONFIRE installation, referencing the landing of Apollo 11, was a highlight at the annual Sculpture by the Sea, the works invited to tour at the Cottelsoe (WA) and Copenhagen editions of Australia’s most famous outdoor sculpture program.

With sculptures acquired by Art Bank, Horstmans is commissioned by many leading architects – among them SJB, Pleysier Perkins Architects and Greg Natale Interior design. Widely published, his works have appeared in Belle, Vogue Living, The Design Files and Yellow Trace.
