Clouds move over mountains, water flows, stars rotate around the earth, and branches move with the wind.  In Nature in Movement, Movement in Nature, Swiss artist Sacha Cotture engages with abstraction to capture the visceral components of nature and recreate the layers of their spirits through his ink paintings.

At 40, Swiss architect Sacha Cotture found a discipline towards self-discovery through painting. After garnering a wide range of experience practicing the strict and rigid discipline of architecture from around the globe, here in the Philippines he found painting as antidote to restraint.

The spontaneity of painting allows him to channel into an inner point of view – a non-intellectual process where introspection can happen. This spontaneity merges fluidly with his choice of media. In his series of works, the expressivity of Chinese ink reveals a fresh handling of a centuries-old tradition through his hands.

It is as if the painter and the medium intertwine to create unexpected narrations of inner consciousness rooting from the holism of day-to-day life.

Delving into a discipline that allows him total freedom – Sacha Cotture continues to explore the depths of his consciousness expressed through the dynamism of his media directed by pure, honest impulse.
