It's enough to traverse the bridge -- and the adventure starts (Georges Brassens)

Brassens’ song fits the relations Geneva – Carouge. A short bridge and the narrow thunderous river Rhone separate two different universes. Carouge was founded by a Sardinian king who hoped to challenge the power of Geneva. The dream was not realised and today, tiny Carouge is a charming reminder of the Mediterranean in cool, orderly Switzerland.

Wilek traversed the bridge …

Toronto – rows of houses, private faces to the street. You almost forget to notice the streetscape – oh – a glance – a backyard gate – what is it about a backyard gate, a bushy tree between houses, sun and shadows on peaked red roofs over there? Intimate yet unknown. Small gems seen on a walk . . . nj

Wilek: “I am led by shapes, colours, dreams”

Objects forgotten on a studio shelf … one day, one glance – inspiration. Inanimate objects may contain stories. The spirit seeks meaning …

Shapes, Colours, Dreams
