BIOGRAPHY

Swiss-American sculptor Roger Reutimann is working with contemporary materials like cast stainless steel and fiberglass to transform the inexhaustible subject of the human figure into present-day original and innovative works of art. His semi-abstract sculptures are boldly colored and meticulously finished with high gloss automotive paints. Reutimann is interested in the purity of shapes, in simple geometric lines that are suggesting of the human form. Influenced by artists like Moore, Brancusi and Arp he also finds inspiration in industrial and automotive design. Reutimann strongly believes in perfection. His disciplined upbringing, life-long piano practice and former careers in the fields of international art fairs and product design give the self-taught artist a unique perspective on art. “I am not trying to solve the mystery of the human figure, but to deepen it”.
