QUOTES:

"Alfons Bürgler is a movement natural, embodying an unusually intense joie de vivre. Dance has long been a main theme of Alfons Bürgler's art. This is true for the tree figures - and also for the two-dimensional works: the figures, which the artist paints and draws in ever new ways, not closing himself off to any technical experiment, are never motionless. They gesticulate, dance, jump - and for all their exuberance they never get in each other's way! To be in this community in which they find themselves is to be good."
(Peter Killer, art critic)

"The overman-high, narrow stelae also appear in their frontal orientation like ambassadors from a long-sunken culture. When two-dimensional dancing figures are visible on them, they remind me of painted walls in Etruscan tombs, while others are reminiscent of Egyptian hieroglyphic writings that proclaim a happy, plump life in this world and the hereafter."
(Walter Hintermann, art educator)

"The re-invention of abstract painting. He outwitted most of them. He hit a snag and let those fall into the void who wanted to banish him to the reserve of watercolors. He made his artistic escape and has arrived in the land of acrylic painting. He is now where one would hardly suspect him to be, but completely with himself and once again ready to take a new artistic leap."
(Dr. Stefan Paradowski, art historian)
