Franzueli 'Schlössli' Rechsteiner

a collection of images, films and audio recordings of/about my father, the Swiss artist Franzueli Rechsteiner who passed away on the 25th of February 2015.

The artist Franzueli Rechsteiner worked and lived in a small village in Jura, Switzerland.

Franzueli Rechsteiner (05.08.1949 - 25.02.2015) AKA Schloessli AKA SUR invites the viewer to travel at ease into his world away from the busy cities and towns, into a world that seems to gain its creative powers and beauty from the soil, the sun, the colour of the sky, the organic & wild structure of the woods. Franzueli Rechsteiner's interest is vast and embraces a variety of themes, materials and styles. In his work he is very material conscious and likes to challenge the element of accident. His work expresses in a fresh, energetic and vivid way religious, political and cultural ideas, questioning the very essence of his existence.

Films

I have decided not to edit the footage too much in order to keep as much of the filmed material as possible. As Schloessli is not an 'edited' personality I have decided to keep it as natural as possible.
