About Margo Weber

Margo Weber-Junod
Swiss artist
1908-1997

"Margo works with a synthetic material: polyester. What she creates with it has the beauty of the primitive female image and at the same time it has the brutality and new forcefulness of modern sensibility which is also expressed in the scale of her colors of violet, green, blue and shocking pink. She lays bare the inside of bodies and creates an elementary world, powerful, flaming and wild. We get a strong desire to touch those strange objects which seem to us so familiar and at the same time so forbidding. We want to feel their tactile reality. In touching them we feel suddendly that they respond, that they move." (André Parinaud, Galerie des Arts, Paris)

Studied at the art academies in
Basle, Salzburg, Paris and New York.
Further studies as a disciple of Giacomo Manzu
and Emilio Greco

Studio in Rom till 1985, then back to Switzerland.

Sculptures in several mueums and in private collections.

Administration of Margo's artistic estate
