Long in love with the Langhe and the Italian territory in general, the multifaceted British artist David Tremlett recently inaugurated an unprecedented work of contemporary art at Le Cattedrali Luxury Relais, in the province of Asti.
The expressive technique of wall drawing that distinguishes the works of Tremlett has, this time, established a close dialogue with the landscape that houses this luxury relais, in particular by dressing the facade of the adjoining theatre open air. With the brilliant brushstrokes of color that culminate in the risers of the staircase, the artist has once again confirmed the strong feeling that binds him to Italy.
When he's here, he feels inspired. In fact, on the occasion of the inauguration, he declared that the evolution of the color used in his works derives from his frequent visits to the Bel Paese: "With this work, I wanted to strengthen the deep bond of art with this territory, a union that is best expressed through the use of colors, which recall the stratifications of the surrounding lands in Monferrato".
A triad in the name of beauty
Conceived as a permanent intervention, the work was born thanks to the understanding between Tremlett, the Noire Gallery - the artist's reference gallery in Turin - and Livio Negro, owner of the luxury Relais which opens its doors to hospitality this summer.
Here, suites of generous sizes welcome visitors with refined design furnishings. For a relaxing break surrounded by greenery and characterized by Italian comfort, the experience is crowned by the restaurant complete with internal cellar, a relaxing spa area in which to spend moments of relaxation and a space dedicated to art in its various forms.
An architecture that pays homage to the history of music
Not only art and relaxation, but also music. The architecture of The Cathedrals evokes harmonious relationships, the same ones that govern the world of art and music.
The theater of the Relais, as rethought by the artist David Tremlett, is a true homage to the history of music and gives the place a new frame to welcome the most different and unexpected forms of expression: "here art happens", confirmed by Le Cattedrali.
The result is an interesting collection of rare memorabilia that retrace fifty years of rock music and beyond: a precious gift from Massimo Cotto, journalist, radio host and artistic director of Le Cattedrali dell'Arte, who states: "The best result is when art is added to art".
