"Art has a mandatory function", Senoner said, ''it must make the world better": "My work is not more or less than an appeal to mankind. Senoner wants the artist to attend to his duties: Each artist must be sure of what he does." Senoner's artefacts are abstract and concrete, they digress into the surreal, because he squeezes in everything, because he overloads, because his ideas overflow. He mixes the natural and the human, winds through a maze of shapes, always remains poetic, often transfigured. However, his art is meant to scare up, it is meant to be somewhat repulsive and shocking, but at the same time it wants to solve formal and colour‑problems.
Biography: Wilfried Senoner was born in Ortisei, son of the sculptor Gabriel Senoner. Thus, from his early childhood on, he was well acquainted with the art of carving. After graduating from the Ortisei Art School, he continued to improve his skills in his father's workshop. From 1964 to 1968 he studied at the Art Academy "Brera" in Milano with the well known professors Francesco Messina, Marino Marini and Alik Cavaliere. He graduated from the academy with first-class degrees in sculpture and art history. From 1967 on, he exhibited his works in either individual or collective exhibitions and participated in competitions, where he won a number of awards. In his last years of life, previous to his fatal skiing accident, he worked at a frenetic pace on a multitude of projects in Italy and abroad, as if he had been aware of what would happen in the near future.
