Markus Raetz is a sculptor and conceptual artist who lives in Switzerland. His art is usually described as being about issues of reality and illusion. For example, he has made a sculpture that suggests the pipe painted by Renee Magritte in 1929. Magritte inscribed his picture "Ceci n' est pas une pipe," (This is not a pipe), and Raetz calls his free-standing sculpture of a pipe "Nichtpfeife" (Non-Pipe). To read more visit Crown Point Press.
