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.
