Dion Horstmans’ Super Sonic @ Leonard Mattis Studio

 Normally when I speak of anything bright, eye-catching, and of-the-moment it’s about this season’s latest makeup offerering.

Time to change up the recipe.

Last fortnight I had my eyes completely spoilt by the latest small works entitled ‘Super Sonic’ by Sydney based artist Dion Horstmans.

His latest installment (available for purchase) is currently decorating the studio walls of one of Sydney’s best hairdresser talents, Leonard Mattis, and allows the general public to take a look at the fragmentation of space and sound – in 3D.

From neon, to black, to minimal white – the sculptures reference fighter jets breaking the sound barrier and time travel smashing through dimensional portals.

I had an absolute blast at the launch party as you can tell (pictured with one of my life long best friends David Bottrell). The ecclectic music was amazing. The cocktails surprised and gave the right amount of kick, and the sculptures had us all barrowing our hands deep into our pocks looking for a spare thousand or so to fork out on a beautiful, visual, buy.

Open to the public:
21st March – 17th April
Leonard Mattis Studio
8 Fitzroy Place, Surry Hills, 2010
