Petra Gabriele Dannehl I vernissage 31st of August 2019

July 30th, 2019

EXHIBITION 

The Galleria SACCHETTI shows new works by Petra Gabriele Dannehl, who commutes between Hamburg and Ticino. The artist’s picture worlds with their mysterious charisma focus on the person whom the artist lets meander between dream and reality. Her protagonists, whose faces are often shadowily hinted at or depicted as back figures, are in her most recent paintings in landscapes, sometimes accompanied by animals, and long for a life in harmony with nature.

 

VERNISSAGE: 31st of August, from 4pm to 6pm, with the presence of the artist 
DURATION: from 31st of August until 2nd of November 

Marlis Spielmann I new works

July 30th, 2019

PAPER CUTS 

With scissors and paper, Marlis Spielmann creates works full of humor and depth. In her paper cuts the human figure is emphasized, moving away from folkloric subjects such as farmer or cows. Events in the surrounding environment, her own observations and experiences as well as images originating from the artist’s fantasy flow into one another. Each work is individually painted with acrylic, giving them a harmonious elegance and three-dimensional effect. 

Jochen Görlach I painting

July 18th, 2019

PAINTING 

The Galleria SACCHETTI shows for the first time in Switzerland the oil paintings, executed in a delicate manner, by the German artist Jochen Görlach. His works reflect a profound study of Baroque painting, especially with the stylistic device of chiaroscuro. Against a dark background, parts of human bodies stand out – heads, arms, hands, legs – captured by a light that cannot be clearly located. Görlach’s figures, who appear oblivious and whose actions are not easily deciphered by the viewer, seem to emerge from nowhere. They show and hide themselves at the same time.

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. Verginer’s sculptural works are predominantlylife-size representations of people, endowed with different attributes, accentuated by the use of green acrylic paint; some hold an axe or scissors in their hands, others carry a bird’s nest on their shoulders or are stuck with one leg in a flower pot. In an ironic and sometimes provocative way, the sculptor traces the ambivalent relationship between man and nature. 

During the vernissage, Bat Battiston will perform music with the guitar (blues). 

 

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.

 

Michele Lamassa I experience live art 3rd of May 2019

April 27th, 2019

EVENT

Michele Lamassa, who lives and works in Locarno, will create a large-format wallpainting in the courtyard of the Galleria SACCHETTI. The artist is well-known for his works inspired by the fresco and “detachment” painting technique. The event allows visitors to appreciate an artistic technique that has apparently become obsolete. 

 

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
