Maison Lavaux Exhibition Guide: A Note on the Painting “The Dream” Dominique Hoeltschi former Associate Curator / Exhibition Manager Fondation de l'Hermitage. https://fondation-hermitage.ch/ ‘Here we see the Moratel beach at Cully, with the terraced vineyard in the background. In this idyllic landscape, the artist captures moments of leisure and relaxation to combat “the tyranny of the urgent”. The intense luminosity of the lake painted in white, along with the variations of green dominate all of his work. The lack of communication between the figures, caught up in their thoughts, creates a collective solitude and evokes the strangeness of the paintings of Edward Hopper, David Hockney or even Alex Kats.'

Certaines toiles, de personnages au bord du lac Léman, reproduisent un mouvement, une position, une attitude, que l'on découvrirait aussi ailleurs, sur une autre plage, qu'importée ? La situation n'est pas figée.
Que découvre-t-on ? Des gens debout en couchés, invariablement sur la plage ou l'herbe, se promenant, bronzant, lisant, s'exposant sur fond de lac de Dézaley ou sous les arbres. La couleur verte domine, elle se repose. On reconnait aussi des vues, toujours de Cully. Il y reproduit des espaces de vie Le village l'inspire.
Some paintings, of characters on the shores of Lake Geneva, reproduce a movement, a position, an attitude, which one would also find elsewhere, on another beach, what does it matter? The situation is not fixed.
What do we discover? People standing, lying down, invariably on the beach or in the grass, walking, sunbathing, reading, all against the backdrop of Dézaley, the lake or under the trees. The green color dominates, it rests. We also recognize views, always from Cully. He reproduces living spaces there. The village inspires him.
