Pointe d’Areu

In the valley of the Arve, east of Geneva, you will pass the Pointe d’Areu. It is difficult for me to estimate the mountain’s height. My computer tells me you can have a magnificent view of Mont Blanc from the 2478 meter high summit.

Le Balcon de Genève en hiver 1

A few months ago I moved from Maputo to Geneva, ideally located in a beautiful environment. It is relatively close to The Hague, so that I can also be there regularly. My work has been quiet for a while, but I will now start painting again. It is only a 15 minute walk from my apartment in Carouge that I look at the Salève, a kind of table mountain that has the nickname the Balcony of Geneva. Indeed, from the top you have a nice view of the city and the lake.

I start with sketching on the iPad in black and white. I am helped by the winter conditions. The mountain wall is powdered with snow, there are many contrasts and surprising forms.

Exhibition AGA LAB 60 years

While moving from Maputo to Geneva these months, I participate in the anniversary exhibition of AGA LAB, the former Amsterdam Graphic Studio, where I printed many lithographs from 1983 to 1990. Now my iPad sketches are printed there in the highest quality and exactly as I want it. Nearly 100 artists participate. I show a print of one of the iPad sketches from my paradise, from the African Kikuyu grass. Tonight is the opening.
