Summary note
"Ted Scapa's life and work presents an extensive universe that is alive with exuberant creativity. The exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Berne, engages with Scapa's career as a fine artist, which has hitherto been obscured by his media presence as a TV moderator and cartoonist: it focuses on the paintings, sculptures, and design objects produced by the artist from 1992 onwards. Closely interlinked with his other occupations, he created a fine-art oeuvre that is characterized by wit and spontaneity, by vitality and playfulness. Scapa's art transformed the everyday into pictorial inventions packed with deeper meaning and a zest for life. He invented a narrative visual language that is remarkably simple and packs everyone directly as if by magic. Scapa's art and his person are definitely quite a phenomenon"--Publisher's website.
