Susy Hunziker lives and works in Basel, where she grew up. Her figures are the result of exploring forms, colors and feelings, and reflect a love of life and aesthetics.
“What began as a hobby about ten years with papier-mâché has become my passion. Today I create finished sculptures from wire and paper. With these materials I try to express different emotions. The result is sad, cheeky, curious or even frivolous characters.”
“I work with wire in different thicknesses as well as colored paper scraps. From these basic materials figures arise in a variety of sizes; from small, seated figures to wire sculptures almost two meters high.”
