This catalogue documents the artistic journey of Rotraut both in the pictorial - with works akin to the poetics of Yves Klein, her late husband - and sculptural field. the monumental sculptures of Rotraut, constructed by means of metallic volumes and painted in monochrome colors, represent through forms of pure synthesis, simple and at the same time universal states of mind. With their joyous radiance Rotraut's sculptures irradiate the open-air settings in which they are installed, so as to form a route running through the City of Lugano from the Museo d'Arte - where her paintings are exposed - to the municipal park and Villa Ciani.
Catalogue edited by Bruno Cora and Daniel Moquay, in association with the Museo d'Arte of the City of Lugano's Spring-Summer 2009 Yves Klein - Rotraut exhibition.
