THE GARDEN OF ARTS

ANDREA ROGGI – BRONZE SCULPTURE

The Art Gallery at Pignano expands its exposition into the surrounding gardens, presenting a collection of bronze sculptures by renowned Tuscan sculptor Andrea Roggi. The Artist’s passion and strenuous technical research turn bronze into a material capable of evoking within us an impression of lightness and airiness, resulting in artworks that are both extremely dynamic and open, with figures captured in dreamy visions and flying dances. The poetic statues shown as part of the Garden of Arts project represent two essential motifs of Roggi’s work: the tree of life and the flight of knowledge. Roggi also presents sculptures in other locations, creating an evocative art route, with works exhibited in the most beautiful public spaces, from Assisi to Pietrasanta. The ‘Circle of Life’ route leads the audience through the most famous Umbrian and Tuscan towns on an artistic journey rich in history and architecture.

OLGA NIESCIER – PAINTING

The Transcendent Tree exhibition is an encounter of three artists, each of them working with different techniques: drawing, photography and painting. Their art depicts the beauty and energy of trees, as well as their poetic symbolism of power, wisdom and origins of life. The exhibition is a dialogue of artistic visions, impressions and interpretations of the tree figure; located in the natural context of a Tuscan landscape, it pays homage to our silent magnificent companions.

The Vital Tree, exposition further expands on the theme of the Tree, establishing a direct dialogue with The Transcendent Tree: a collective of three artists, whose work is expressed through different techniques: sculpture, photography and painting. The exhibition celebrates the vitality of the plant kingdom represented by the symbolic tree, with its roots connected to the stability and the richness of the soil yet with its branches reaching upwards, towards the sky, communicating an ethereal sense of joy and freedom. Within the historic church and castle of Certaldo Alto you will experience a thought-provoking exhibition inspired by the natural figure of the tree. Sculptor, Andrea Roggi, presents his redolent and romantic bronze sculptures which evoke diverse interpretations. Painter, Niescier communicates the Zen philosophy within her artistic representations of natural subjects expressed within layers of tridimentional paint. Photographer, Nacci’s depictions of trees display an enchanting dreamlike quality.

ANDREA ROGGI – SCULPTURE

Tadeusz Niescier, a renowned Polish painter and photographer. He lives and creates in the northeast landscapes of Podlasie. His lifelong artistic study is based on the close observation of the simplest elements of plants and flowers bringing the examination of detail to almost abstract expression. Recently, his passion turned towards photography resulting in surprising portraits of the tiniest elements of plants in large scale, giving them new meaning, visual metaphors of cosmic infinities as well as human emotions. Extracted from their natural state, often arid from the passage of time, these fragments of nature reveal incredible richness of textures and details. In their faded abstract beauty, abundant and delicate, they capture frozen movements of life, suspended in space, weightless.

CARLO ROMITI – PAINTING

Terra Vivente, the living earth, is an art journey exploring the richness of soil as both, inspiration and a material of creation. The exhibition presents an encounter of artists that interpret and relate to the earth in various ways. On one hand we will see ceramic and painting artworks created directly with the use of terra as a medium, creating a sensory immediate experience. Another approach will be that of observation through the languages of photography and painting, portraying the abstract beauty of earths, contemplated both in detail and from faraway distance.
