On the one hand, 3D Structuralism is the result of long-standing research and basic study; on the other, it is also – as is the case with so many things – a product of chance.

On the lookout for something new, a distinct style or technique, Markus Wanger painted in all possible styles and techniques in the 90s.

Time has been and is an expensive product, and hence, picture carriers were created one after the other.

The structure mass was not always applied carefully and uniformly. The paintings primed mostly in white colour were then painted and processed in several steps.

One of the techniques was to subject this picture carrier to a further coat of brilliant colours and then to paint abstract or even concreted figures on them.

A structure was visible in some of the primed images, but it was not experienced as disturbing due to the technique selected then.

Then chance played its role in 1995: Two picture carriers brought something astounding to the fore. A small chapel – St. Mamerta in Triesen – could be detected on one; the Wildschloss ruins at Vaduz could be detected on the other.

St. Mamerta is a legendary chapel and legends, such as “The treasure of St. Mamerta” bear testimony to its legendary character.



The architecture of the tower of the St. Mamerta Chapel is conspicuous. This tower too was clearly visible on the re-painted base.


Legends are rife even among the ruins of Schalun at Vaduz, called Wildschloss8 (wild castle) in common parlance.






The ruins of Wildschloss/Schalun were created way back in the 12th century.






These two incidental paintings roused the curiosity of Markus Wanger, especially because it seemed that such a technique has never found any mention in the history or art and even art historians who were contacted were not aware of a similar, already existing technique.


If this technique is new, how can it be checked most effectively? The technique was new and somehow usable. These were the basic preconditions for a patent.
