Polar bears swimming in the water and rearing up, people hiding behind thickets and walls, fish and flowers rotating wildly, and all of this swirls into plant-like forms and architectural elements recalling eddy, cave and urban landscapes.Sabine Hertig’s large-format collages combine thousands and thousands of fragments to make one profound overall construction. The Swiss artist has created an independent and unmistakable oeuvre that constitutes a forceful and innovative handling of the medium of the collage. Equipped with scissors and glue, Hertig repeatedly questions her own unconventional capricious idiosyncratic formal idiom, while at the same time constantly developing it further.
