Art and Wine. Hugo Schaer

“I have been working with symbols in my artistic work for a long time. Over the years, it has developed its own vocabulary. I translate the history of your vineyard into my symbol language and thus, tell your story as an accessible, spatial experience. The forms used for the individual symbols are varied: wall paintings, concrete reliefs, steel objects, ceramics panels, projections, glass walls, engravings… In addition to supplying narrative, the symbols also have a decorative component and are intended as a counterpoint to the digital flow.” / Hugo Schaer, 2019

Symbols – Art and Construction

Symbols – Art and Construction

“Maybe you want to give your site a unique appearance and convey a message with an artistic accent?
I have been working with symbols in my artistic work for a long time. Over the years, it has developed ist own vocabulary which has evolved in such a way that it is constantly updated with new symbols.
I translate your themes into my symbol language and thus, tell your story as an accessible, spatial experience. My symbols always have stories related to the history and function of a place and thus leave traditions for the future visible as sustainable communication.
The forms used for the individual symbols are varied: wall paintings, concrete reliefs, steel objects, ceramics panels, projections, textile printing, engravings, graphics, etc.
In addition to supplying narrative, the symbols also have a decorative component and are intended as a counterpoint to the digital flow.”  (Hugo Schaer)

Zeichen – Kunst und Bau

“Vielleicht möchten sie ihrem Ort einen unikalen Auftritt verleihen und mit einem künstlerischen Akzent eine Botschaft vermitteln?
Seit langer Zeit beschäftige ich mich in meiner künstlerischen Arbeit mit Zeichen. Über die Jahre hat sich so ein eigenes Vokabular entwickelt, welches laufend mit neuen Zeichen ergänzt wird.
Ich übersetze ihre Themen in meine Zeichensprache und erzähle damit ihre Geschichte als begehbares, räumliches Erlebnis. Meine Zeichengeschichten haben immer einen Bezug zur Geschichte und Funktion eines Ortes und lassen so, als nachhaltige Kommunikation, Traditionen für die Zukunft sichtbar werden.
Die Anwendungsformen für die individuellen Zeichengeschichten sind vielfältig: Wandmalerei, Betonrelief, Stahlobjekt, Keramik – Pannello, Projektion, Textildruck, Gravur, Grafik….
Die Zeichentexte haben neben der narrativen auch eine dekorative Komponente und verstehen sich als Kontrapunkt zur digitalen Flut.”  (Hugo Schaer)

IL LIBRO / Vasia (Imperia), Italy

June 23, 2019. Inauguration of the iron sculpture “IL LIBRO” as a sign for the library of Vasia (Imperia), Italy.

BRONZE SCULPTURES

In collaboration with the Fonderia Artistica Di Piero De Carli in Volvera (TO) Italy I create smaller and larger bronze sculptures. As with my wooden sculptures, ships transport my stories. In the studio Casa dell`Arte I model the ships in wax, which are then cast in bronze in Volvera using the lost wax process.

Portrait Painting

Portrait Painting. Hugo Schaer, 2018, 5’58
From 1995 to 2005 In Kiev I created my tile pictures, which were printed with wooden stamps in several layers on canvas. These tile prints serve, now many years later, as a background for my portrait painting. The horizontal and vertical lines of the tile grid form a coordinate system like the latitudes and longitudes of a map, in which I locate the portraits of my favourite painters, sculptors, musicians, writers….

Pannelli di ceramica / Ceramic panels

La Cucina web

Ceramic panels by Hugo Schaer produced in the Fabbrica Ceramiche Giuseppe Mazzotti 1903,  Albisola, Italy

The booklet “Pannelli di Ceramica Hugo Schaer” (pdf download)

In Albisola, the ceramic city of Italy on the Ligurian Sea, you will find the traditional “Manifattura Ceramiche Giuseppe Mazzotti 1903″, where artists from all over the world have been producing high-quality ceramic art since the beginning of the 20th century. Picasso also worked here.
The collaboration with Tuglio Mazzotti is very inspiring and brings results in best quality.
Since 2014 I have been producing Pannelli, ceramics – pictures in bright colours for interiors such as entrances, staircases, corridors, kitchens, bathrooms …
The ceramic pictures are very hard-wearing and weatherproof. They are therefore also suitable for outdoor use, such as facades, atriums, terraces. The colours retain their luminosity for “eternal” times.

In Albisola, der Keramik – Stadt Italiens am Ligurischen Meer, befindet sich die traditionsreiche “Manifattura Ceramiche Giuseppe Mazzotti 1903″, wo seit anfangs des 20. Jahrhunderts Künstler aus aller Welt hochwertige Keramikkunst produzieren. Auch Picasso arbeitete hier.
Die Zusammenarbeit mit Tuglio Mazzotti ist sehr inspirierend und bringt Resultate in bester Qualität.
Seit 2014 produziere ich hier Pannelli, Keramik – Bilder in leuchtenden Farben für Innenräume wie Eingänge, Treppenhäuser, Korridore, Küchen, Bäder…
Die Keramik – Bilder sind sehr strapazierfähig und wetterfest. Sie sind darum auch für den Aussenraum, wie Fassaden, Vorhallen, Terrassen geeignet. Die Farben behalten ihre Leuchtkraft für „ewige“ Zeiten.
