A Swiss outsider art collection welcomes you


Aconcha Santz


Was born 5.5.1940 and died 5 11 2016. Self-taught, he is still actively involved in creative expression from an early age, through the painting, etching, etching on glass, woodworking, sculpture, welding, the art of soldering, work on small stones and collage, using all materials that fell into his hands and that in all areas.
From the age of 27 , he runned a store of art supplies and was teaching children painting. For 37 years, he uses most of his free time drawing, sketching, painting and writing. After his retirement he finally has the time, experience and energy necessary to devote himself entirely to his creative expression. Fredi his wife encouraged him to list his works and to sell them on a famous auction site, which he did in April 2007 under the name EMO.
When asked why George Jagiello classes his works as "insane art", he replied: "What I draw or paint is what I see in my mind or in the paper, water, sand, clouds or even peeling paint around me. There are thoughts, crazy images that most people, like me, censor, refuse and rejectas they are not rational. Through my creation I share such private small glimpses. Most of my family and friends still do not know to this day that I paint, sculpt, draw. I am a very private person, I have lived all my life in this way. The people with whom I worked for over 37 years do not know that my time is not limited only gardening, fishing or long trips with my wife Fredi".

The back of the drawing in landscape mode with the recessed face and mouth in pill contains the following handwritten autobiographical text and a sketch of the profile of the front: "I have experience with medical care. We are treated as templates 15 minutes for a doctor to decide on weight and activities, to give a lecture to prescribe medication is always a piece of work incompleat, after short time it would be the "Next patient please"
