Peter Georg Müller

Short Profile

Focus on the Essential. – Peter Georg Müller, born in Zurich in 1954, has been working autodidactically for almost three decades with natural stone from all over the world. As a trained construction engineer, he has a fine feeling for materials and their spatial staging. He has always been interested in transitions, fractures, and the relationship of bodies to one another. His sculptures captivate through highest precision, simplicity, and timeless elegance. His works are not only beautifully shaped and geometrically surprising, but they are also convincing in terms of haptics. The surfaces and edges of his often nested sculptures are incredibly finely crafted. One cannot help but touch and caress the stone. This sensual quality creates a connection to the Earth and the mineral treasures of Nature: Art made for touching, but at the same time clear and focused on the essential.

The works of Peter Georg Müller have been exhibited in Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Holland, and China. The artist lives and works in Switzerland and Spain.

Statement

»In my work I want to achieve clarity and concentration by simplifying form, shape, and statement. My wish is to establish a connection to the basics and essentials.«
