The Swiss artist Martin Disler (1949-1996) must be considered a major figure of the European painting scene which emerged in the late 1970’s. Disler’s work–not following any style or aesthetic dogma–stands for an overwhelming painterly energy. Reflecting fundamental human forces and an existential view of man’s existence, Disler’s paintings and sculptures are pushing their subject to an extreme beyond rational comprehension–while his most touching, most moving theme remains the absolute power of human love in all its many fold dramatic forms and expressions.
