Focusing on the horizon, Biel-based artist Marcel Freymond deals with the insignificance of things in his latest works. At second glance, supposedly recognizable objects reveal a transformed identity. What captivates in his paintings are his masterful handling of color and the physicality of abstracted forms: thickly applied oil paint that becomes a relief, and an untiring lightness in his artistic work.

A view into the distance at the gallery. You and your family are warmly invited to Staring at the Sea / Staring at the Sand.

Despite the current restrictions, we are pleased to welcome you in compliance with the regulations of the BAG.

Thank you
