Exhibition in Unterseen, 2013
A major retrospective exhibition in Unterseen, near Interlaken, 2014
In October 2014 my Guild colleague Peter Marti and I put on a large retrospective exhibition in the KSU Gallery in Unterseen near Interlaken.
I showed a total of 48 works, painted over a period of 25 years, from 1988 to 2013.
Depicted are not only the Swiss Alps but also landscapes of Scotland and Australia and the glaciers of South Island, New Zealand.
The selection below is presented chronologically.

1988 - 1990
The earliest works include views of the Sutherland coast of Scotland, Watendlath Tarn in the English Lake District and Maderanertal in the Swiss Canton of Uri.
1991 - 1993
Besides trips to the Engadine and Lötschental valleys of Switzerland, we made a memorable tour of Scotland and the Outer Hebrides.
1995 - 1996
In addition to the alpine paintings for the Guild exhibitions, a special focus at this time was a series of mountain streams and waterfalls.
1997 - 2001
A visit to the East Tyrol area of Austria gave us tantalising glimpses of the Dolomites, which was followed by a series of paintings based on our trips to different parts of Australia.
2002 - 2008
As a result of the Guild exhibitions in Zermatt and Saanen/Gstaad there arose a series of paintings of the Matterhorn & Co. and in the Saanenland around the Lauenensee.
2009 - 2013
In 2010 we were able to make a second visit to New Zealand and enjoyed spectacular aerial views of the glaciers around Mount Cook on the South Island.
A special project organised by the UNESCO (Sardona Tektonik Arena) provided an opportunity to study the Martinsloch above Elm, and finally, for the Guild exhibition in Grindelwald 2013, I painted three pictures of the Bernese Oberland peaks from the Bachalpsee.
