Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency
Markus Gadient is a Swiss painter. Trees are a recurring motif in Markus’s work, anchoring his ethereal style in concrete observation and experience of the natural world. His paintings are both sensorial and conceptual: his technique could be describes as letting his images grow and blossom.
