Born in a small town northeast of Switzerland, nAscent artist Regi Müller trained as a textile designer which she described as the only “creative outlet” offered in Switzerland.
“The mentality in Switzerland was to learn something practical,” Müller said.
Luckily for us, her transition to being an artist resulted in artwork every bit as peaceful as the country of her birth.
One of Müller’s pieces, available at The Bare Square Store, is “Curiosity.” Müller said she went through several different looks for this piece until the final artwork “felt right.” Müller’s minimal use of soft colors and delicately shaped circles brings a sense of calmness to the viewer.
“In my early work, I used a lot of straight lines but now I like to experiment with circles and ellipses,” Muller said.
How did she realize her dream? Because jobs in the textile design industry were scarce, so Müller moved to the U.S. in 1995.
Though she freelanced in graphic design, Müller returned to her passion, transitioning from being a textile designer to a professional artist. She focused her artistic efforts in print-making, sculpture and installation (while freelancing in graphic design). Müller began installations in the nineties while continuing to create sculpture and prints. Müller’s pieces contain restrained colors and geometric shapes, forming the foundation of her work.
Müller shows her work mainly in Switzerland and the United States. You can bring a sense of peace to your space by buying an exclusive, limited edition print of Swiss-born-artist Regi Muller’s ”Curiosity” at The Bare Square Store starting at only $20.
