The artist wanted to highlight these magnificent Valais peaks that he climbed: Grand Combin, Matterhorn, Dent Blanche, Pollux, Weisshorn are reinterpreted through screen printing to represent with force and modernity a background and the masses composing the mountain.
The second technique presented in this exhibition uses solid oil to highlight the high peaks through this display of bright colors, going from the coolest blue-green to the warmest red-orange. Come to the mid-exhibition opening to discover this rich work or at any time of your choice!
