The relationship between man and nature is a central theme in the work of Christoph Mueller. He combines observations of nature with reflections on the medium of painting. His artistic processes are derived from real-world phenomena.

The digitisation of photography and the accompanying acceleration of technical development have had a considerable influence on his current work. The painter experiments with different creative processes. He explores the possibilities of visualising interpretations of content and form, both with analogue painting techniques from past stylistic eras and with contemporary digital imaging processes. With calculation and the chance of chance, content and form meet in a surprising way. He encourages us to question our view of things as well as our view of his paintings. Christoph Mueller lives and works in Zurich, Camischolas (Switzerland) and Cosprons (France).
