Erwin Bruegger

Hello,
With my hard work as a carpenter I needed a compensation, so I studied art at the New Art School in Zurich.
I like to play with colors, bodies and figures and I ever try to make things differently. I make free, surrealistic paintings and for some years I painted like Jackson Pollock.
I also do drawings in every technique possible.
I made some exhibitions around my hometown of Fribourg and as a member of the kunstforuminternational.ch I participated in art fairs in Salzbourg and Reggio Emilia and in other cities in Italy.

Sculptures

As a carpenter I have access to many different woods and like to make something different from all day work, making stairs. I make sculptures out of other materials too, like plaster and some metal.

Dance of the coffee-cups “Dance of the coffee-cups”

A sculpture made out of pear-tree wood and it was missing the name. Then one day I spilled some coffee and with some movements of the cup it looked like the sculpture. So I had the name of the dance with the coffee cups.

Pleasure-Blessure “Pleasure-Blessure”

A body made out of pear-tree with some pieces of maple tree, a body that can give you pleasure and too it can get hurt.

The swing “The swing”

It's some of an abstract sculpture with a swing, hanging from a wire. With iron plate and a ring out of maple and walnut wood.
Dimensions 51 x 60 x 53 cm

A souvenir from war. I wasn't in any war, but was in the army and my shoes served for a sculpture.
