Urs Stooss - People

21-03-2019 till
13-04-2019

The works of the Bernese artist Urs Stooss are widely known: Not only because he arranges his protagonists - mostly from a bird's eye view - on large, empty and monochrome canvases, but also through the choice of noble colours such as gold, silver or mother-of-pearl, which he uses as the background colour for his paintings. Stooss makes his own colours with pigments and binders, which is why none of his background colours is like the other.

The figures in his pictures are based on photographic models, which he brings onto the canvas using a specially created technique. All the people depicted are strangers, Stooss photographed them somewhere in the world, retouched their personal characteristics away on the computer and reduced them to the essential, their posture, their movement. Only after the retouching on the computer does he collage the "plot" in the picture, relate the individual figures to each other and construct a story. The shadows are an important part of the composition and create the depth effect.

People stand, they walk, they run, they meet, they ride bicycles. They are all anonymous people in an anonymous space, a surface without beginning and without end, without horizon. And yet there is much that is familiar in the new pictures: It is people like us who move in everyday situations in urban space.

Urs Stooss (*1943) lives and works in Bern. He has been working as a freelance artist since 1970. His works are represented in various public collections, including the Inselspital Bern, the Obergericht Biel and the Stiftung Bächtelen Bern. In 1972 he was awarded the Aeschlimann Scholarship of the City of Bern and in 1971, 1973 and 1976 the Swiss Art Scholarship.
