Ernesto Baltiswiler reflects his experiences amidst Swedish woodland with 20 new paintings

In 1991 the acclaimed Swiss artist Ernesto Baltiswiler spent one year in a tiny house without electricity and water from a spring in middle of a forest in Sweden. He experienced the particular nature of a forest, simplicity, solitude and gardening. The results were 20 new paintings titled “Im Wald drinnen” ( “Amidst Woodland”) which he exhibited in a pop-up gallery of friends in the Ruhrgebiet in Essen, Germany- once the centre of huge steel industry. They published a book “Ernesto Baltiswiler” which got designed by the acclaimed Swedish art designer Anders Ljungman. Ulrich Krempel, director of the Sprengel Museum in Hannover, wrote about Baltiswiler’s paintings, photographer Snezana Vucetic Bohm took a wonderful portrait with a boa snake and the printers of Plitt Druck- and Verlag GmbH, Oberhausen performed a very high print quality.
