Alpine landscapes – is there anything more sublime than that?

From September 7th to September 30th, 2023, the Jedlitschka Gallery presents graceful and imposing mountain and alpine sceneries by Bruno Müller-Meyer and Rik Beemsterboer.

Swiss landscape painting has a long tradition that goes back to the 18th century. Even then, artists were attracted by the breathtaking scenery of the Swiss Alps and began to capture the landscape in their works. World-famous artists such as Caspar Wolf, Alexandre Calame, Ferdinand Hodler, Félix Vallotton and others are an integral part of this tradition.

Rik Beemsterboer is a Dutch-Swiss painter who has lived and worked in St. Gallen since 2000. "As a 'flatlander', I was so fascinated by the mountains in Switzerland that I had to paint them straight away," says the Dutchman. Earlier Dutch painters such as Rembrandt saw the mountains in the clouded skies and painted them. "My mountains are in my new home, and I paint them." In his characteristic way of working, he paints the chosen motifs with a lot of verve, expressiveness and authenticity. Viewed from a distance, the pictures appear detailed and photorealistic. But up close, the brushstrokes are clearly visible, which illustrates the painterly production process. In his latest mountain pictures, he uses the finger technique, which causes details to fade up close. The further away you get, the more contrasting and detailed the works become. In the current exhibition, Beemsterboer presents works in oil on canvas and wood, on the mountains of eastern Switzerland, as well as majestic depictions of the Matterhorn.

Bruno Müller-Meyer, the Lucerne artist, has explored the genre of Alpine painting over decades in various creative phases. Working in a studio with a clear view of Lake Lucerne, he tries to recognize new aspects and painterly possibilities through daily observation of landscapes and to make the local theme visible. By simplifying the motif and the rigor of the composition, he has found a calm way of depicting nature. The effect of his pictures is carefully calculated. Everything should work together to form a harmonious whole that touches the mood. His powerful choice of colors seems almost exaggerated and yet it reflects accents of nature in its immediate vicinity. In his depictions of the high Alps, the colors and contrasts are particularly strikingly accentuated. In the exhibition, Müller-Meyer is showing new paintings in oil on canvas that capture motifs from eastern Switzerland to the Valais.

Lakes, mountains, sky and clouds are characteristic elements of the Swiss landscape and play a central role in the paintings. Lakes often reflect the sky and the surrounding mountains, creating a visual harmony. Mountains symbolise both the sublime beauty of nature and the human

Longing for something higher. Sky and clouds give the paintings an atmosphere and mood that ranges from peaceful to dramatic.

In view of this, landscapes are not just physical places, but they reflect inner feelings and emotions. The images of nature are soul landscapes and resonance spaces, as Müller-Meyer calls them. Landscape painting often serves as a backdrop and metaphor for the human soul. Majestic mountains, the wide sky and picturesque lakes create deep emotions of grandeur, silence, peace or even melancholy.

Consciously avoiding human figures, they are absent from Müller-Meyer and Beemsterboer's landscapes, as are signs of civilization. Anecdotes would only weaken the poignant and direct emotional impact.

The silence of the Alpine landscapes conveys a sense of calm and contemplation. They contribute to clarity of mind and reflect the purity and beauty of nature. The depictions themselves become a canvas for human emotion and reflection.
