The great plains of polders, the houses firmly fixed in the earth, the light and flexible trees and the constantly moving sea and skies have given Kappeler's work a different dimension in which there is a close interrelationship between the narrative and the formal aspect which becomes the base of the movement that each dominant feature of his painting transmits. He does not shy away from blots of paint, palette knife strokes, tears, integrations, cuts, holes; everything is possible in the pictorial celebration - both tragic and exalted - that Kappeler has created in his latest works.

lt is not in vain that the vibration and movement that is evident in all his ideas and work is inspired by a dance theme, with all its wealth of gestures, with all the aesthetic quality of the body's morphology and the degree of pathos that it is capable of expressing.
