Papillons et parfum des fleurs



Zuber is an artist from the Studio Glass movement, developed in the United States in the 1960s and radiating out to Europe in the 1970s and 1980s. In this context, he apprehends glass without denying its tradition, while giving it an expression other than functional.

His sculptures highlight essential pictorial elements; they take advantage of the transparency of glass, one of its fundamental qualities.

A dense and continually enriched iconography moves the imagination of the sculptor. Through his dynamic and colorful compositions, Zuber deals with the modern world from many aspects. All the people, animals and objects finally create a completely dreamlike universe everyone is free to interpret according his or her own sensibilities.

Technically, Zuber points out, there is nothing new, even if his technique benefits from a higher degree of mastery acquired through a long practice. Creation remains in the choice of the scenes (fantastic animals with various expressions), and finally in the shape given beforehand to the block of glass.

While Zuber’s sculptures seem to be easy to read, they implement, however, different superposed pictures. Inside the main shape various elements settle and create other images that multiply inside a space which could be called “the frame.” Their meaning becomes diversified by the optical effects of the crystal. His sculptures strike us by their force, mainly due to the contrast of bright colors and transparencies, to the dynamics created by the cut, and at last by a sensitive staging.

Seen as a whole, his creations are a stunning inventory of discovery and surprise, of optimism, often unexpected, but always thrilling and exuberant.
