Extract from Futuro art magazine 1112, 200607
An artist with a rapid, convulsive stroke, a painter who „stabs“ his brush, as if to sever and score, a sculptor who substracts matter in order to shape air, Erwin Bruegger possesses the capacity to complement the creative act with strength of will and agility… He affirms the right of the artist, of modern man, to construct an eternity for himself by extracting from everyday life that mysterious beauty with which human life injects it… Pino Bonanno
