Marcus Egli

Born in 1957 - Switzerland


Marcus Egli was born in 1957 in Zurich. He lives and works in Les Ponts-de-Martel in Switzerland.

Marcus Egli bought a hardware store with his wife in 1980, and it was then that he had contact with aluminum and he really liked the material, he liked it so much that it became his favorite material later on. In his business he worked with this capricious material for a long time in order to get satisfactory results, because he really liked the look.

Marcus's works revolves mostly around a character he calls the "Hominium" which is a hieratic statuette with a smooth face that reflects its environment. The artist likes to play on the contrast and on the material effects, his figures have a rough physical body and polished faces.

The artist likes to compose and arrange his "hominiums" combine them, manipulate them and update his small statuettes clusters.

In his sculptures, Marcus Egli questions the viewer about his worldview. His pieces, deal with different topics from the irrational, the mundane and abundance to isolation.
