new series in preparation
I am currently working on a series of paintings, placing my characteristic figures and elements of the typical Bernese medieval architecture in front of a plane golden background. This has the effect of becoming somewhat more abstract. We'll see where this leads..
Here's a quick blurry view into my atelier, as a teaser.
new paintings uploaded
I have finally uploaded four large-scale paintings (90x120cm) finished in 2014. The painting "Schwinger" was exhibited at Cantonale Berne Jura 2014/15. See "gallery", as well as a short news article in the section "expo" under "I am".
a painting in Thun
Hotel Schwert in Thun, a wonderful cosy hotel in the old town of Thun offering vintage designed rooms in an medieval townhouse is presenting one of my large-scale paintigs. It's worth spending the night and having a look. Ask the owner for this specific room. Besides, the kitchen offers excellent menues! www.schwert-thun.ch

Cantonale Berne Jura 2014 / 2015
I am pleased to announce my participation at this year's Cantonale Berne Jura - Weihnachtsausstellung.
One of my larger scale painting (90 x 120 cm) was selected to be exhibited at Musée Jurassien des Arts in Moutier (www.musee-moutier.ch) along with other artist's work from the cantons Berne and Jura! See detail on right!
Cantonale Berne Jura will start with a vernissage on december 13th 2014, 17:00 and will continue through february 1st 2015. For further details, as well as a list of participants and locations, see www.cantonale.ch
alegoria new exhibition
Starting this week, i am showing some of my work at the two locations of Sprachraum (a private school for languages) in Thun and in Bern. Bern will mainly concentrate on new paintings. In Thun, however, I am showing works that have mostly been exhibited earlier in Bern. Additionally, I am exhibiting in Thun a new series of coloured prints on wood.
On October 22nd 2014 I will be present at the location in Thun for a Vernissage with hors d'oeuvres. This event will take place with the monthly event (called "BLABLA") organised by the school. The concept includes coming together for a chit-chat, a drink or to having a good time, as long as people communicate in foreign languages, be it English, French, Spanish, Italian,....
The exhibition will continue through the rest of this year until February 28th 2015. Please keep in mind, that some rooms may be occupied for classes, at any given time. I propose to consult the respective homepage for opening hours and directions how to get there: www.sprachraum-schweiz.ch
Looking forward to seeing you there!
I have been experimenting with my current technique and found a way, I believe, represents more accurately the sketches I draw. At the same time I can transform them more precisely onto a large scale canvas. Having much fun and working on a new series… hopefully, I will have a chance to exhibit some of them in the near future!
Klinik Wyss, where I exhibited part of my work previously, has created a collection box "Jubiläumsedition" of all artists that have been represented over the past ten years. Each artist is therein shown with a painting and a short description of his/her work on a post card. See photograph...
I have been grooming the stable, so to speak - some older paintings have been removed and newer ones added to this page. See the galleries for more details. As a teaser I have added this photoshop-coloured sketching....
