Axel’s Amazing Geometric Sculptures

View all 10 Photos

The semi-abstract geometric sculptures of Axel Brechensbauer paints a picture in my head of what a giant, upgraded version of a traditional chess piece would look like. Brechensbauer creates these beautiful 3D sculptures that merges the elements of nature with the man made world.

Nature is not evil, it´s ugly. That’s why we have gardens. It´s like ok, but we can do it a little bit better by arranging everything. We are obsessed by Tetris, order and man-made systems. Before nature was scary, then romantic. But now we feel sorry for it. But does it matter? It create shapes and we create shapes or are we it? Surely, we don´t want to. I create shapes and so should you.
