Swiss-born artist Palmi Marzaroli lives and works in Leysin. Marzaroli’s work is the result of his fascination with Expressionist painters, his interest in Schopenhauer’s philosophy, and his life experiences. Having developed an interest in art at a young age, he experimented with different media and materials before finding his favourite one, ink on paper. He applies ink in spontaneous brush strokes, as a singular expressive act, following the movement of his body. The result is a smoky atmosphere and a special blurred effect that achieves a great variety of tones. The power of this artist lies in the ways in which he cuts out everything superfluous to reveal the essential.
Switzerland, his native country, with its mountains, glaciers, and lakes, is an endless source of inspiration for his landscapes. Marzaroli’s paintings invoke mystery and foreboding silence, he catches the essence of the landscape, its ephemeral atmospheres, as well as his own meditative thoughts and personal memories.
