Fabian von Spreckelsen

A graduate of the Academie Beeldende Kunsten in Maastricht, the Netherlands, German-born artist Fabian von Spreckelsen is now based in the Netherlands. He cultivates a deep fascination for nature, passed down from his biologist father, who guided Fabian on the discovery of the delightful world of living organisms. This relationship and interaction between a constructed environment and unspoiled nature has steered his artistic instincts. Fabian von Spreckelsen is captivated by the links between humans and the natural elements surrounding them, and in his sculptural designs, he continuously interprets nature as a powerful force, requiring respect more than protection. The resulting strong and radical artwork draws inspiration from flora and fauna in their abstract geometries, with both strength and beauty in their simplest, sometimes abstract forms. The lines of his work are clear-cut, producing visual effects that are simultaneously minimal and maximal. With his sculptural approach, he creates unique and bespoke pieces with a specific personality; the variety of his works reflects the diversity of nature and its connection with profound human values. He aims for a balance between arithmetical design, craftwork and artistic freedom, while always working with a respect for the environment and harmony with his surroundings. His recent monumental sculpture project,” Freddy”, in Corten steel, takes him in a new, more conceptual direction, that he also translates into his new collection of seven cabinets that combine weathered iron and tanned leather, reflecting the stages of his life in a direct extension of the artwork “The Soul Portrait” which was show at the first edition of “Le Sacre de la Matière”. Spazio Nobile has represented Fabian von Spreckelsen since 2017. A solo exhibition of his work will be held during the 2022 winter, in the gallery’s Studiolo.
