Description

“For Adrian Schiess, painting has never meant wanting to build an oeuvre. It is above all about following through a vital questioning whose finality is revealed only as it progresses. For almost thirty years, Adrian Schiess has been pursuing an artistic and spiritual adventure that has never swerved from its original direction, so that we now have a powerful sense of the coherence of both the man and his art. Artists have always taught us how to enter the real, to perceive the world's density. The work enables us to refine our gaze, it stimulates the surprises of contemplation, recreating the essential links between man and nature. The work as mirror of nature, mediator in our relation to the world, stimulates multiple uses, like a critical mirror of society, questioning the viewer about ideas of growth, death, chance, contingency and transience.”
