She works with brass and a hand grinder – the Swiss metal artist Greta Rohner, born in Davos 1972, with her workshop in St. Gallen (near Altenrhein airport), uses a technique she developed herself to create aesthetic wall decorations which are unique the world over in terms of workmanship and design. “I liberate the 'Luisa' who is lying dormant within the brass panel; she is a luminous diva and a goddess – she is pure sunlight. For me, each work is a momentous experience,” explains Rohner. With the hand grinder and a variety of discs, she penetrates the brass panels to differing depths and fashions sweeping, flowing shapes with “smooth, swaying movements”, thus creating unique, 3D-effect pieces in gold and brown tones. By applying selected liquid chemicals to specific points, the artist then intuitively decorates her art with additional colours (blue, violet, grey etc.). The picture is finished with a layer of hard, crystal clear, UV-stable automotive paint which gives it a high-gloss, resplendent shine and protects it from environmental impact.
