Ernestina Abbühl, born and raised in the Engadine and a citizen of S-chanf, takes her inspiration for her abstract reliefs from the cycle of nature and the mountain world of the Engadine: Ice, rock, earth, alpine flora are her four main themes, which consistently run through her work in varying, natural colours and selected materials. The Rhaeto-Romanic titles of her works in her mother tongue are meaningful and equally mysterious.
Her works are usually made as reliefs in papyrus and paraffin on wood. Depending on the motif, dried flowers or other materials are being inserted.
Ernestina Abbühl’s reliefs have manifested themselves in important places at home and abroad. For example, in a collaboration with the Swiss architect Prof. Gion. A. Caminada. And at exhibitions with established galleries at Art Karlsruhe, Art Salzburg, Art Bodensee, Huntenkunst NL, Museum Engadinais St. Moritz and many more.
