Pinacotheca at Bucaneve
The masterpieces of Claudio Mosele transform Hotel Bucaneve in a sort of alpinistic art gallery: his paintings talk to the welcoming environment surrounding them, giving life to a festive and folkloristic atmosphere filled with the warmth only few mountain areas can create.
Born in 1963, Claudio discovered his love for painting as a child but started only expressing it after his marriage. His first works were infact created purely for a personal purpose and were exposed only in the Mosele home. His dedication for his art, confined by his free time, started diminishing due to his work. However pushed by his friends, which stumbled upon his creations, he engaged in a new challange, to get his art out in the open. The incredible abilities of Claudio and his unique style are freely inspired by two other artists of Aosta Valley: Italo Mus and Franco Balan.
The subjects in Mosele’s painting depict rural life, starting from the very colors he uses to the traditions of Aosta Valley he represents in his art. Mosele paints only with his fingers: paint brushes don’t exist for him and neither do palettes. The pastel colors are mixed directly on cardboard where his representation of naive art is joined with experimentation and research only to give life to a collection that today is exposed at Bucaneve, and is explained in a catalogue that came out in December 2015.
A New York art critic Nicolas Fox Weber, which amongst his studies he includes the biography of Le Corbusier, noticed these paintings and immediately wrote a heartfelt review on them, where he expressed his approval and admiration towards Claudio Mosele’s works.
