PHILIPPUS MEIER: Pipe Sphere
It’s about the hidden beauty of architectural geometry. Encapsulated in the face of the steel wall found within ordinary industrial elements , set free through other industrial means; expressing its beauty outside its hidden identity, there by subjected to a sense of movement reminiscent of water eruption.
Philipp uses mainly steel to make his sculptures which range from large public works to smaller private acquisitions. He completed a bachelor of Visual Arts and Design in 2003. Shortly after this he took part in constructing a sculpture park for the Auckland city council, which proved to be a deciding factor in his decision to pursue sculpture. In recent years his work is held in private collections throughout New Zealand as well as Singapore, Australia and Germany. He continues to work both collaboratively and individually, actively engaging in developing exciting new projects.
