About the artist
a short biography
Mathias Rusch, 7.9.1927 - 22.9.2003
"We humans always want the greatest, the best, want to jump from peak to peak.We are like artists on the trapeze, performing the most daring leaps and hoping not to fall.But we must also be able to fall - on Christ. For this we need a kind of basic trust. I think, despite all the artistry, that love and trust are the most important things in our lives - not the daring jumps that the audience applauds."
