ChrisPierre Labüsch, Winterthur [www.labuesch.com]
Over 30 years have passed since ChrisPierre Labüsch created their first metal works in a small garage in Dübendorf (Switzerland). Since then, the two artists have continually developed their extensive work and gradually established themselves in the art scene.
Numerous exhibitions at home and abroad reflect their continued success. Coming up are 2 museum exhibitions in Japan (in 2017 Kanaya Art Museum and in 2019 Ueno Royal Museum in Tokyo).
Humans are often the focus of their artistic work. Their sculptures are the result of thorough studies of human being, its environment and nature. Their partially abstract figures seem graceful and delicate. They create a synthesis of statement clarity and form beauty which result from the two metal artists’ intensive examination of their ideas, views and emotions. Increasingly the artists create not only figurative work but more abstract, concrete as well as constructive art. Design elements in their work are the basic colors red, yellow and blue and the two iron sculptor artists us it often very playfully.
The artist duo ChrisPierre Labüsch lives and works in Winterthur (Switzerland) and inspires many viewers with their works. With innovative enthusiasm and a wealth of ideas, the two artists have been pursuing their own path, self-assertively and persistently. Therefore it is no surprise that they are always able to successfully position themselves and have been able to make a living from their art work for 25 years.
