Roger Reutimann (Switzerland 1961 - )


About

Roger Reutimann was born in 1961 in Winterthur, Switzerland 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 semiabstract 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 selftaught artist a unique perspective on art. “I am not trying to solve the mystery of the human figure, but to deepen it”. Reutimann explains: “I’m taking my sculptures to a different level,
one that includes elements, which can’t be expressed by words. To me sculpture is like painting a thousand paintings,” Reutimann says. “It adds another dimension in very permanent mediums,
such that will last for generations. The third dimension in sculpture has a powerful impact on the observer, one that relates to our physical reality. It lets the artist play with different perspectives.”
