Christian Verginer I vernissage 13th of July 2019

May 24th, 2019

EXHIBITION 

The Galleria SACCHETTI shows for the first time in Switzerland works by the South Tyrolean Christian Verginer. The artist creates fascinatingly detailed sculptures and relief-like works of limewood. Mostly his figures are depictions of children with different attributes, which are accentuated by the use of neon green acrylic paint. In an ironic and sometimes provocative way, the sculptor traces the ambivalent relationship between man and nature.

 

VERNISSAGE: 13th of July, from 4.30pm to 6.30pm, with the presence of the artist 
DURATION: from 13th of July until 24th of August

Petra Gabriele Daniel I new paintings

May 2nd, 2019

PAINTINGS 

The Galleria SACCHETTI has new works on display by Petra Gabriele Dannehl, for example the wonderful oil painting Cherry Blossom (2019). The focal point of her work is mankind. The figures in her paintings move between the realms of reality and dream and are defined through a conscious blurring of their attitude and movement in abstract space and context. She has lived and worked for over 30 years as a freelance artist in Germany and Switzerland.

EVENT: 3rd of Mai, from 4pm until the work is completed around 10pm 
SUPPLEMENT: The Galleria SACCHETTI exhibits a “detached” work by the artist until the month of June 2019. 

Michael Schuster I vernissage 26th of April 2019

April 6th, 2019

EXHIBITION 

The Galleria SACCHETTI shows for the first time in Ticino works by the German artist Michael Schuster. Dried and pressed sycamore leaves serve as the material for Schuster’s artistic work. Using a scalpel, he carefully and expertly cuts out figurative silhouettes from single leaves, which are then applied to paper or assembled in the form of wall installations. Thematically, Schuster deals with the preservation and retention of memories. His cut-outs are based on photographs, including snapshots from his family album, which he transforms from the personal into the universal, bringing them to life in another medium, shifted in time and space. Schuster lives and works in Berlin. 

During the vernissage, Erry & Kenzo will perform music with the guitar and the hang. 

 

VERNISSAGE: 26th of April, from 6pm to 8pm, with the presence of the artist 
DURATION: from 27th of April until 22nd of June 

Maximilian Verhas I vernissage 26th of April 2019

April 5th, 2019

EXHIBITION 

The Galleria SACCHETTI shows for the first time in Ticino works by the German artist Maximilian Verhas. Since 1985, the Berlin-based sculptor Verhas has created works in bronze, which he calls rolling bodies. By gently hitting on a smooth surface, Verhas’ abstract sculptures can be set in motion. The inherent possibility of localized change in the sculptures and the associated polydirectional visibility determine their aesthetic value. Due to the continuous variations in point of view, the viewer’s perception is stimulated and the limited understanding of sculptural works is overcome.

During the vernissage, Erry & Kenzo will perform music with the guitar and the hang. 

 

VERNISSAGE: 26th of April, from 6pm to 8pm, with the presence of the artist 
DURATION: from 27th of April until 22nd of June

Daniel Eggli I vernissage 16th of March 2019

February 6th, 2019

EXHIBITION 

The Galleria SACCHETTI shows new sculptures by the Swiss artist Daniel Eggli. He studied at the Hochschule der Künste (ZHdK) in Zurich before beginning his career as a freelance artist in 2001.

„My sculptural works are committed to figuration, whereby individual figures, as well as larger ensembles of figures, are worked out of solid wood with a chainsaw. Stylistically, these works are close to abstract naturalism. In terms of content, they are about the representation of characters which are often ironically overdrawn. The work is always based on the observation of people. The roughness and brittleness of the material, as well as its resistance, are always a challenge when it comes to the depiction of human or animal figures.”

During the vernissage, Daniel Eggli will work life in the courtyard of the Galleria and if desired create a personalized portrait sculpture of you. 

 

VERNISSAGE: 16th of March, from 3pm to 6pm, with the presence of the artist
