The works of Hanna Roeckle (* 1950 in Liechtenstein) are poised between painting and sculpture. Her three-dimensional works are based on spatial struc­tures and serial systems, whose clarity of form enters into a polytonal dialogue with sensitive combina­tions and transitions of color. Art is joined with other fields of research, since in her work the artist draws on specific concepts from geometry, physics, systems theory, cultural history, and the history of architec­ture and design. For the grounds of the Haus für Kunst Uri she developed a sculpture that is a kindred spirit of the polyhedron portrayed by Albrecht Dürer in his mysterious engraving Melencolia I (1514). With its crystalline edges, Roeckle’s polyhedron represents a logical development within her oeuvre. Spray-coated with monochrome car paint, the surface oscillates between a blue-green violet and a flowing, warm red, depending on the position of the viewer.
