An unexpected, deeply touching experience combined with personal encounters and contact with wood carving changed my life in 2016. Since then, logs and chainsaws have become an integral part of my life.
As a counterbalance to my very beautiful and demanding job as an architect, I allow myself a lot of time as a wood sculptor in SAGBAR, with my sawmill. The intellectual as well as creative freedom, pure gut feeling, absolutely only according to your mood and without specifications, to be able to develop limitlessly, is a living dream for me.
Ernestina was born in 1967 and grew up in the Engadine. She has been shaped and fascinated by the alpine environment since childhood.
For many years the artist has been dealing with the subject of the ALPINE and HIGH ALPINE AREA.
She gets her inspiration from tours and excursions in the alpine (cultural) region.
The abstract reliefs reflect the alpine structures and, as the artist calls it, “alpine architecture”. she is interested in the passed, the apparently simple and little perceived.
This magic of creation, which plays multi-faceted in the depths of the natural elements. The immense primal force of alpine nature fills your humanity with gratitude, humility and fascination - as always great rays of light.
SUSTAINABILITY through the use of found materials "objects trouvés" such as various papers (including handmade) and fabrics / cotton from the cultural environment of the alpine regions and their stories.
Paraffin / wax as a means of artistic expression and its specifications such as protection, longevity, value retention, impregnation, preservation.
The use of wax, its important material, is similar to sealing and protecting a valuable treasure.
