Serge Nyfeler: Opening 16.9. ab 18h, Galerie SOON, Sihlquai 125, 2. Stock, 8005 Zürich

16 September - 17 October 2021

An exceptional artist shows new works in the context of his development over the past 30 years. An exciting journey through the probably craziest periods of our world awaits us.

For over thirty years now, the artist Serge Nyfeler has been picking up his brush. His works translate an often catastrophic reality with humorous and abstract elements. The Swiss painter and draughtsman weaves the connections between people and their surroundings with expressive components that refer to current events.

Always on the lookout for motifs, he has accumulated a lot of inspiration over the years in the form of sketches, notes, collected images from the media or from the street. This leads to representations in which the figures are always in the context of their surroundings and are indications of current events. In recent years, Nyfeler began to let the works emerge more and more from within himself and to process the countless daily impressions of our time in this way.

By combining abstract and figurative pictorial elements, Serge creates peculiar sceneries between which connections can only be guessed at. His humorous and critical views and perceptions are reflected in sometimes absurd pictorial compositions, but always leave the viewer room for his own interpretation, which is given all the more freedom in the more recent works.

Characterised by a colourful palette and unmistakably expressive stylistic elements, Serge's paintings bear witness to an intensive examination of contemporary content and artistic creativity.

Serge Nyfeler, born in Samedan in 1963, devoted himself exclusively to painting after completing his training as a graphic artist in 1984. In his 20s and 30s, which he spent mainly in France and Bern, Serge worked as a stage designer, interior architect and above all as a painter. Since 2002, Serge has lived and worked in Bern and Justiniac (F).
