Gallery St Barth is delighted to present for the first time in New York City, the inaugural solo exhibition by upcoming Italian artist Giorgio Pasqualetti, who presents “Nature’s Rules”, with an opening night cocktail on Thursday with Giorgio present for the exhibit that runs until Friday, November 12, 2021.

 

“I wanted to focus my attention on these uncontaminated places not only to excite the viewer but also to reflect on the fact that to preserve these environments we must necessarily respect the laws of nature. It is clear to everyone how nature reacts with strength and “rigor” when man ignores or forgets these laws. Environmental disasters are now on the agenda.” – Giorgio Pasqualetti

Art today sensitizes the viewer on environmental issues in many ways and for those who like Pasqualetti create abstract geometric works, it is the color that indicates an emergency.

 

In the diptych “Amazonia” the red background echoes the environmental tragedy of deforestation and fires in the Amazon rainforest which not only represents a threat to the climate but also a breeding ground for dangerous pathogens.

The rigor of nature is a project born not only to raise awareness but also to rediscover a connection with the natural elements.

 

The lockdown and the fear of contagion have created a disconnection between man and the environment and narrating the seven natural wonders of the world with painting is like diving back into the soul of nature, into its secrets, into the light of its colors.

 

Sky, woods, rocks, earth, water, give us the free and clean breath we all need.

 

“The need to show reality not as it appears but in the way my mind perceives its appearance, translates into this new project that investigates the purest nature with its colors and its hidden geometries and how men try to change the laws by which nature itself expresses itself.” – GP

His command of color and his elegant tableaux have caught the attention of Italy’s most prominent curators in addition to collectors including LVMH who have commissioned half a dozen custom paintings by the artist.

 

Pasqualetti has received international press coverage from Vogue Italia, Vanity Fair, and GQ as an artist to watch and his star is on the rise.
