Swiss artist Silvia Buol, born 1954, studied fine arts and contemporary dance, and from the outset of her career she has been working in both disciplines simultaneously. Her large-format works on paper reflect a rich experience with space and movement, landscape and nature, becoming and decay. They express her constant dialogue with movement and volume of her own body as well as with the character and properties of colors, papers, and fabrics she is using. This beautifully manufactured, object-like book features for the first time a selection of Buol’s visual art alongside essays by scholar and critic Konrad Tobler and by writer Martin Zingg.
