Phoenix by Doris Bühler

Doris Bühler talking about her work: "As a visual artist, I am principally interested in the human being itself."

"The human body in its power and beauty is what so captivates and occupies me. Through it, I always attempt to draw out nature's deepest mysteries and express them in my work. Since the flooding of the Nile was always followed first by the appearance of birds, the Egyptians made a connection between Phoenix and Osiris, responsible for annual renewal of nature. The 'firebird' symbolises eternal life, resurrection and life after death."
Doris Bühler, 1970, Liechtenstein 

1990 Business Degree in Switzerland
1994 Bachelor of Fine Arts at Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts (USA)
2000 Masters of Fine Arts in Sculpture at the New York Academy of Figurative Art

After completing her studies, Doris Bühler established her own studio as a freelance artist in her homeland of Liechtenstein. In autumn 2004 she received the Beverly Hoyt Robertson Memorial Prize from the National Sculpture Society in New York.
