Urs-P. Twellmann, "Noble-Fir-Crystals", Slices of dead Noble-Fir at Fawn-Lake, Mt.St.Helens, WA, USA, 2000

Urs-P. Twellmann

Swiss artist Urs-P. Twellman has had an unusually productive relationship with natural forms and materials which he often cuts apart and then reassembles to create "visual poetry." His stunning sculptures and installations reveal a high degree of craftsmanship as well as a gentle touch which presents the inherent beauty of what is.

"My main focus lies on transforming. In this process - where destruction and creation become as one - materials are collected and analysed; they get bent, broken, split and cut to become new forms or are arranged in a different context. The individual process can be long or short, free flowing or troublesome, can be hard physical work and lead through phases of chaos, disorientation and uncertainty - but it has to be a new challenge every time, resulting in expanding experiences and journeys of discovery. While I am interested in all materials, it's wood in all its variations, conditions and forms I usually prefer to work with."
