Riccarda Caflisch-Desax and Walter Schmid in the City Gallery

Exhibition in the City Gallery: expressive, figurative, abstract

Riccarda Caflisch-Desax and Walter Schmid will share the City Gallery in Chur's City Hall from August 31 to September 9 and present their works to the public. The idea of a joint picture exhibition arose from Caflisch and Schmid playing music together in the Chur rock and blues band "Storklane": She as a singer and he as a bassist and singer.

With apolitical bent
At the center of the works by Walter Schmid (1949) presented in the Stadtgalerie is the human being, vaguely recognizable, sketchy, faceless, abstract or concrete. They were created in various techniques: Graphite drawings, paintings in oil, pastel, watercolor, acrylic to the combination of several painting media. In many works, stories can be recognized, often politically and socially tinged.

Mountain worlds and blossom magic
One of the central themes of Riccarda Caflisch-Desax (1963) is the mountain world of the Grisons, with whose artistic representation she has been dealing since 2012. This has resulted in works that offer an unusual view of the mountain world. Since 2021 she has been developing a new technique with dried flowers on a special canvas.
