index of sculptures 1988 to 2023
Bas-relief in salvaged wood #133, 182 diameter x 14cm.
Private collection, Barcelona, Spain.
Val Tremola shows the hairpin bends of the Tremola Valley that are part of the old Gotthard Pass route. One of the highest paved roads in Europe, it used to be a busy connection until the Gotthard Road Tunnel opened in 1980. It is preserved as a monument appearing today as it was in 1951.
The Val Tremola relief was based on vintage postcards and constructed using salvaged wood, utilizing the worn and weathered character of the surfaces to emulate the terrain.
