About Markus Baldegger

Markus Baldegger channels the expressive energy of abstract painting traditions pioneered by Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, and Cy Twombly into canvases that teem with dynamic line and gesture. Inspired by colors and forms found in nature, Baldegger’s oil, tempera, and ink paintings allude to pastoral, arcadian environments. Fields of circles, ovals, and lines fill pastel backgrounds, capturing the soothing, atmospheric reverberations of oceans, forests, and symphonic summer air.

Swiss, b. 1947
