“Vitalità” in Borgo Pignano, where art, nature and luxury are one

Borgo Pignano, a beautiful luxury Tuscan Hotel, celebrates the opening of its exclusive art Gallery with a unique edition of ‘Vitalita’ – exhibition of my paintings and Andrea Roggi’s sculptures.

Located in the heart of the Tuscan countryside near the Medieval towns of San Gimignano and Volterra, Borgo Pignano is a unique country estate where art and creativity can be found in abundance. A luxurious hotel offering elegant accommodation, Pignano is a natural magnet for artists, where its serene environment offers inspiration for both creating and exhibiting.

This September see’s the launch of Pignano’s new Art Gallery and exhibition space located in a beautifully restored historic farm building. The Gallery offers a tranquil yet sophisticated environment for artists to exhibit their work and allows hotel guests the privilege of viewing exceptional art during their stay. In addition to the new gallery space you will also find private collections of 20th Century British art sitting harmoniously alongside artwork from emerging international artists throughout the 18th century Tuscan Villa.

In collaboration with the Royal Drawing School in London, Pignano also offers scholarships and residencies for up-and-coming artists, supporting and encouraging art and culture in many forms.

The new Pignano gallery features classic vaulted ceilings and original brickwork floors and is surrounded by beautiful gardens, woodlands and open countryside.

The ancient terrain surrounding Pignano pays testament to the deep-rooted philosophy that ‘everything comes from the land’ and this message is beautifully depicted within the Vitalità art exhibition now hosted within Pignano’s gallery space. Here you will find a unique and harmonious fusion of inspiring works by painter Olga Niescier and sculptor Andrea Roggi.

Tree of Peace – the installation at the entrance of the Cathedral of San Gimignano

I am honored to present my painting together with Andrea Roggi’s sculpture in a truly special location, right at the entrance to the breathtaking cathedral of San Gimignano (Duomo di San Gimignano), among the best of Italian art history:

The installation “Tree of Peace” represents the artistic project “Vitalità” founded on the continuous research and dialogue between Olga Niescier and Andrea Roggi, whose creative visions subtly and profoundly complement each other, as each explores the vital energies which permeate and inform our human experience and God’s creation.

In a play of cross-references in perfect balance, the works of these two artists convey a strong message, becoming the representation of peace, while seeing in man and in nature the fruit and gift of God, the Creator who is an involved and vital presence in our world.

“Tree of peace” presented by The Circle of Life Art Gallery will be exposed until the end of October.
