Art in the hotel
Throughout the hotel you will find choice works by various artists as an integral part of the overall concept. There is a permanent exhibition of works by Jürg Opprecht (proprietor of the Lenkerhof) and alternating works both by well-known and lesser known Swiss artists. There is always something new to discover and provide you with fresh inspiration.
|Art for the support of disadvantaged people
Jürg Opprecht: Nature and art are closely connected, even when they seem to contrast with each other. Journeys to all corners of the globe have inspired his art. In Cuba, Kenya, Alaska or Benin, he discovers many objects which had fallen into oblivion and have now found their resting place within his artworks.
Peter Stalder: „Painting is giving me the opportunity to plunge, to calm down, te let my self go just to retain and hold on myself immediatly, to finalise.“ This is the description of Peter Stalder about his artwork, which he is practicing since 12 years by experimenting with different materials, preferring to paint on linen and wood. His acrylic paintings affect themselves in the stress field of positve coulours and forms. His abstractions diversify from fluently to polygonal and effectuate together with the strong coulours enough space of subjective perception for each observer.
The Swiss sculptor and artist Urs.-P. Twellmann is kind of a modern nomad, beeing inspired by foreign countries. Beside sophisticated small sculptures and huge outdoor sculptures, he arises worldwide generous installations and fading interventions by integrating their landscapes and seasons during their creation. The intensive examination with the multifaceted raw material «wood» and patiently exploring its characteristics and options, as well as finding the balance between chaos and organisation represent the center of the creative process for both kind sculptures – huge outdoor and smaller indoor sculptures.
