Jürgen Lingl-Rebetez (1971)
Mail voor nadere informatie
Jürgen Lingl-Rebetez ("JLR") was born in 1971 in Bad Tölz, Bavaria, Germany. From early childhood he was interest in art - drawing and painting everything he set eyes on: animals, people, buildings, landscapes. At the age of 20, after graduating from Josef-Effer Grammar School, Dachau, JLR exhibited for the first time in a gallery in Dachau showing studies of nudes using various techniques. After his mandatory civil service in Schönbrunn, JLR began a wood sculptor apprenticeship with Master Hans-Joachim Seitfudem. His submission for his graduation won him the first prize in Munich and Bavaria and second place nation-wide.

In 1996, JLR moved to Switzerland and worked as an independent artist. He married Françoise Rebetez in 1997 and a year later their daughter Marie was born.

JLR then began creating works with a chain saw. His classical education permits him a creative freedom without any technical hindrances, from religious subjects like angels, holy figures and monuments to nudes and animals. Since 1999 JLR has been living and working in France.

Jürgen’s own personal style is powerfully apparent in the passion and animation which shines through every single piece of work. His sculptures are like drawings, drawn with the chain saw in a three dimensional space. Colour and pencil support the vibrant, impressionistic surfaces.
JLR's works are found both in private and in public collections across Europe, the US and Canada.
