The fascination of glass lies in its contradictory nature; in its brittle fragility contrasted against its hard transparent strength. These characteristics and the great sensitivity of the glass raw material when being worked, invites me to express myself in distinctive and minimalist forms. For example, simply the temperature in processing can determine texture and color in unique, non-repeatable ways. A few degrees higher or lower in the firing process can result in a completely new and different work. Or when creating thin glass surfaces, working in the smallest millimeter range, I create a feeling of fragility that almost denies the material’s own existence, but at the same time forcefully demonstrates its immense strength and durability.

Jürg C. Bächtold

 

In 1982, I began to creatively explore clay as a material in my first own studio in Hochdorf. Even then it was clear that I wanted to devote myself primarily to ceramic art. Numerous exhibitions in Switzerland and participation in foreign competitions (Vallauris and Faenza) confirm my work. Among other things, I was at the III. and IV. World Triennale Exhibition of small Ceramics Zagreb for my works. There are also various public purchases.

 

As one of the people responsible for the development of M-art ceramics, I then taught in the M-art house in Suhr.

 

In addition to my own constant experimentation, I was able to expand my knowledge with Friedrich Stachat (Germany) and Professors Giovanni Cimatti (Italy) and Imre Schrammel (Hungary), among others. I am a member of the Working Group of Swiss Ceramicists and the Form Forum.

 

I have been running a studio for experimental ceramics since 1999. As before, I would like to pass on my experiences to art lovers and interested parties in the form of works of art at exhibitions and as a ceramic sculptor and designer in workshops.

Heinz Julen was born and raised in a warm family bond in Zermatt.  Deeply rooted in his homeland, where religion is very important, characterized by a spirituality which gives his works an individual dimension.

 

Heinz Julen wants to be authentic with his art. Therefore, the question "why?" is always in the room and always remains in the discourse with his creative power but especially with his art.

 

He doesn't just see himself as a painter, furniture designer, architect, or whatever. For him everything is part of the whole. (cf. Marcel Duchamp).

 

The room, the picture, the shelf, the chair, etc. are one and grow together in his creation process as a “total work of art”.

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 Abbühl

 

"structuras alpinas"

 

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.

Margret Achermann

 

Exhibition

Freitags, Samstags und Sonntags

1:00 to 6:00 pm

From the life of Margret Achermann-Voges

 

Margret was born on April 3, 1940 as the first child of Margarete and Heinrich Voges in Lüneburg.

Her father was in the war. Towards the end of the war, the mother had to fly alone with her 5-year-old Margret and her 3-year-old brother Klaus von Rügen, where she had been raised by her parents, to the grandparents and relatives to Lüneburg.

 

During this time the father was lost and was later declared dead. Many years later, Margret was informed by the DRK search service that he had died in Russian captivity.

 

Margret visited the middle school in Lüneburg and received Zei-chen lessons next to the school. After graduating from high school, she went to the Vocational School for the Precious Metal Industry in Schwäbisch Gmünd for seven semesters. After graduating in 1964, she started her first job in Zurich.

 

Later, as a goldsmith's manager, she moved to Bucherer to Lucerne. There she also met her husband Sepp Achermann von Rothenburg. On September 1, 1967, they both married and took up residence in Lucerne. Margret continued to work as a goldsmith's manager for many years.

 

As a married couple, Margret and Sepp bought an old farmhouse. There she found her creative fulfillment in peasant painting. For Margret, it was very important that she always dealt with the relevant topic in detail and thereby acquired in-depth knowledge. She did not have half things or superficial knowledge. During this time Margret Truhen painted cabinets, but also cabinets in the art of peasant painting. She was also active as a course leader in this area.  Next, she turned to icon painting. In many courses she has worked in this art and then created wonderful works in countless working hours.

 

Quote:

"Painting or writing icons is, on the one hand, the challenge of the technical side, which requires a large number of work steps and a certain dexterity; on the other hand, it is the theme of the icon itself, a pre-given representation that leaves no room for one's own will to create. Icon painting is more of a meditative than a creative activity. "

 

In the 1980s, Margret took a job in the debt service of the city of Lucerne and taught as a specialist teacher in technical and pictorial forms. She really liked her students. She has always been full of enthusiasm for the creativity, commitment and enthusiasm of children and young people.  Especially in the last decades, painting has become their special passion. She has formed and developed further in various techniques. For example, she regularly attended courses at the School of Painting, Drawing and Design in Lucerne.

 

In her home-made studio, beautiful watercolors and also impressive oil paintings were created. The separation with the design of three-dimensional images with special materials such as e.g. Sand was another challenge for them.

 

Mala stays they took to Venice and Greece. She was very proud to show her work at openings and exhibitions and thus to gain a certain fame as a painter.

 

In April 2007, she traveled to Namibia with her niece for two weeks. The unbelievably impressive landscape and wildlife was then processed by Margret with impressive colors in her images.

 

Margret was a positive, agile person. She was very communicative and extremely helpful. Age-related health restrictions did not have much significance in their lives.

 

To the surprise of her relatives and friends, Margret visited the cantonal hospital Lucerne at the beginning of February. Unfortunately, she could not go home. On February 28, 2021, she finally fell asleep peacefully.

Acrylic and oil paintings, sculptures

 

I work with various painting materials, mainly with oil and acrylic paints on wood, canvases or cardboard. My pictures are mostly allusions to social and world political issues with hidden humor. The pictures always have to be looked at in depth in order to fathom the various hidden ideas.

Claudio Cassano

 

Claudio Cassano, was born in 1968 and lives and works in Brugg.

 

He has been processing various types of metal into artistic objects since 1988. It is precisely with the combination of warm light and cold metal that he creates, in spite of the ostensible opposites, imaginative, harmonious light and luminous sculptures. This creates atmospheric works that fascinate the viewer again and again.

 

Claudio Cassano is a metal worker, carpenter, designer, artist. For him the transition is seamless, everything comes under the concept of art. He has an open eye for extraordinary craftsmanship, collects old blacksmithing and complements found elements with his own creations made of metal.

 

Window heads, which he unscrews from old shutters and reuses in his sculptures as originals or as processed casts made of various materials, are guardian angels for the artist; but through the staging of the artist they show the artist's humor and often refer to the nature of the people with a twinkle in their eye.

 

Claudio Cassano lives his passion; he is always enthusiastic about exciting projects and live performances. He is also co-founder of the Artbar culture festival, which took place in Brugg for 10 years, the Kunststanzerei Baden exhibition, which was organized for the second time in 2014, and co-initiator of the scrap yard festival that takes place every two years in Brugg on the Bingisser site. After an exhibition in Saas Fee in Valais, he took over the Ka Art gallery in 2011, which he ran with his partner, Regula Zimmerli, until the end of 2014. The decision was made and they celebrated the opening of the IMMAGINAZIONE gallery last October, as the move from his studio to the new rooms at Aarauerstrasse 96a in Brugg offered the opportunity to run a gallery. In addition to various art exhibitions, the gallery has become a popular aperitif meeting point every Thursday from 3:30 p.m. under the motto “Encounters, Art and Being”.

 SUSI KRAMER

Multimedia artist

 

Born in Oberhof AG in 1947, ateliers in Oberhof, Paris and Cannes.

 

Susi Kramer has been exhibiting her paintings and sculptures in Switzerland, Europe and Asia since 1979.

 

In 1994 the artist expanded her work with acrylic glass sculptures. In a brilliant way the transparent medium reflects the artist's work and thinking in layers.  She created her own universe on our planet. It's these colors, the Fantasy and poetic ease with which it touches us and a different point of view of reality is revealed.

 

Susi Kramer: “I cannot imagine a life without color.  It is my breath. ”The painter finds inspiration for her work in everyday life and wherever she is. But above all in nature, with which she is intensely connected.

OPENING HOURS

1:00 to 6:00 pm

 

SYLVIA HEUSER

 

Born on October 13, 1964, I live and work in Sissach.

 

Since the age of 18 I have been studying oil and acrylic painting as an autodidact. At the same time, I continued my education at the Basel School of Design as well as with well-known artists in painting, drawing and sculptural design.

 

As a freelance artist, I have been exhibiting regularly since 1999. I take part in art exhibitions and sculpture trails and repeatedly initiate large-scale projects and community work. The exchange and work with other artists as well as with people from different areas of work is essential for my personal and artistic development.

MUNDY NUSSBAUMER

 

Mundy Nussbaumer grew up in Erstfeld, between steep mountains, the steel rails of the large Erstfeld marshalling yard and the site of the Erstfeld Celtic treasure. The solid professional training as a metal construction fitter allows Mundy Nussbaumer to give free rein to his ideas of forms from the mostly unruly materials steel, aluminum and, in earlier work, concrete.

 

He added the broad horizon of the Middle East and Africa to his place of birth in the narrow valley early on. After completing his training at the Lucerne School of Design in the fine arts department, Mundy Nussbaumer works as a freelance designer in Lucerne and Altdorf.

As a lecturer at the Lucerne School of Design, he counts on the students following the search for artistic expression with a file, chisel, saw, press or welding torch from within.

 

 Mundy Nussbaumer drives this vision. He captures the moment in photographs when a camera is at hand. He is interested in the form initiated by sight or thought and removes the essential from the whole. Sketches what particularly impresses him on a stone dump, a rear light or lying dough sticks. Someone has shaped them with strength or with ease. A reservoir for art.
