René Myrha

A Singular Universe

Mysterious scenographies transformed with color: the art of pictorial narrative by René Myrha.

At the center of René Myrha’s expressive oeuvre lie landscapes and rigorous compositional room perspectives which are transformed into stage-like settings. They form the scenery for the choreography of his figures, which Myrha examines through specific media in drawings, oil, acrylic, sculpture, and reliefs. Born in Delsberg in Switzerland, the painter encountered the contemporary movements of art and design during the 1960s in Paris and Milan. In the foreground of his activities lie forms and volumes that combine and break through constructed and organically created spaces. In his later works, they are animated by a surreal figural universe. Full of color images, this book presents a representative cross-section of Myrha’s oeuvre, from Pop Art to an obsessive preoccupation with a mysterious and dramatic world of figures.
