Iris Hutegger

France, Paris Galerie Esther Woerdehoff

Iris Hutegger (b. 1964, Austria) moved to Switzerland in 1990 and currently lives and works in Basel. In 1994, she began taking classes in sculpture and drawing at the School of Art and Design in Zurich and Lucerne (HGK) and graduated from The Basel School of Art and Design in 2005. Since 2004, she regularly exhibits her work. In her photographic work, Iris Hutegger takes mountains as subject. She prints in black and withe from color negatives and from those almost abstract documentary photographs, embroiders her own colours with a sewing machine on the landscape, bringing an emotional third dimension to the pictures.
