Shocking tragedy: Artist couple blown up in studio explosion

The kinetic artist and musician Norman Perryman reports: The eminent artist Glyn Uzzell (84), a fine painter and art educator, died on Monday when his house in Portugal exploded. Glyn was Head of Visual Arts at the International School of Geneva from 1957 and helped me develop the International Baccalaureate Visual Arts Syllabus in Geneva in the early seventies. The works of his students were outstanding examples of our aims.


The rich colours of his lyrical abstract paintings were inspired by the Portuguese landscape, where he lived near Lagos since 1979. His partner (Paul Fonck, a languages professor from Luxembourg) also died, his studio and work were destroyed. RIP Glyn.
