Pierre Matter works mostly with bronze and embellishes the sculptures with recycled objects, using welders, plasma cutters, laser cutters, and grinders to shape and sculpt. “I’m a kind of salvager. I feel like a child in a heap of sand, but instead of sand, there’s a lot of recycling and scrap, full of magnificent objects.” Often, the sculptures, which emerge from these scraps of metal speak to us of who we are and how our future might be.

The Art Of Recycling
Fusion of Jules Verne and Metropolis.
Pierre Matter wanted to be an astrophysicist, he became an artist instead, and I think he has made the right choice.
