René Myrha (Multi-lingual edition)

A Singular Universe


This book is not yet published, but will be available from June 2022.

ISBN: 9783777438993 Category:


At the centre of René Myrha’s (*1939) expressive oeuvre lie landscapes and rigorous compositional room perspectives which are transformed into stage-like settings. They form the scenery for the choreography of his figures. Myrha examines them through specific media in drawings, oil, acrylic, sculpture and reliefs.

Born in Delsberg in Switzerland, the painter encountered the contemporary movements of art and design during the 1960s in Paris and Milan. In the foreground of his activities lie forms and volumes which combine and breakthrough constructed and organically created spaces. In his later works they are animated by a surreal figural universe. The publication shows a representative cross-section of Myrha’s oeuvre, from Pop Art to an obsessive preoccupation with a mysterious and dramatic world of figures.
