Alfonso Hüppi’s works, which sometimes have constructivist echoes, elevate the picture surface and the picture carrier itself to art. Hüppi works predominantly with wooden boxes, slats, boards and palisades, which already show an age-related patina and which he uses as picture panels. They are dominated by diamonds, rectangles, triangles and circles. The geometry is usually broken in a playful way by shifting shapes and lines against each other in such a way that a kind of rhythm is created.

In the process of transforming the simple materials into works of art, their components are recomposed and transformed into independent spatial objects.

In addition to colored wooden reliefs, Hüppi’s rich oeuvre also includes small objects, drawings and collages.
