On Thursday 11th June, Inside Venice will open the summer season with a special evening dedicated to the world of flowers in the wonderful garden of Hotel Flora.
Flowers / Art
The artist Radu Leon will present his floral pastels in the magic frame of a secluded, evocative garden of yesteryear.
His flowers are elusive, withered and light. His brush captures the light quickly, the colour shade and the intensity of the moment; they witness the beauty and the memory of natural changes. In Radu Leon’s drawings, we see triumphant tulips, daisies, wisteria, narcissuses, daffodils, cyclamens. Baroque compositions, be it entire gardens or single flowers. The pastel is sometimes considered as an old fashioned, minor technique, but here it shines in its own light. The exhibition will continue until 5th July.
Radu Leon studied cinema at University and completed a Masters in visual arts. He took his PhD in History of Arts in Venice. He teaches drawing techniques. His works were exhibited in London at the Royal Academy of Arts, at the Mall Galleries in the annual exhibition of the Pastel Society UK (2011), at the W.H. Patterson Gallery and The Osborne Studio Gallery in the exhibitions “Venice in Peril” (2012 and 2015). He has been presenting his works with the Société des Pastelistes de France since 2003.
Flowers / Bubbles
Thanks to the collaboration with Valdo Spumanti, our guests will have the pleasure to taste Rosé wine Valdo Floral in the limited edition bottle designed by Fabrizio Sclavi: great energy and fresh elegance express, through the flowers a homage to nature, beauty, colours and to a positive worldview and women.
