“Clarity through simplicity.”
Swiss artist, Alexander Saner is self-taught and lives in Breitenbach, near Basel. In his early years, Saner worked as a cartoonist for newspapers. Since 1993 he creates three-dimensional sculptures.
"The object depends on the subject. The real dynamic part of a static artwork is the living observer himself."
The following statements of creative personalities influence his practice:
-"Art is the elimination of everything superfluous."
-"The greatest complexity is the greatest simplicity."
-"Clarity through simplicity."
-"If nothing can be taken away, the work is completed."
