Art at The Alpina Gstaad
Aiming to go beyond the expected, The Alpina Gstaad combines passion and an innovative vision to offer a unique platform for art, beauty and freedom of expression.
Beauty is first and foremost related to the senses. All art, whether in the form of paintings, film or music, is part of a continuous search for the meaning of life. Lascaux’s paintings, Constable’s landscapes, Tchaikovsky’s waltzes, Keats’s poems and Oscar Wilde’s writings all strive to define life’s purpose, a process which occurs through experiencing art.
Art should always have an emotional effect, whether negative or positive, on those experiencing it. There is no right or wrong in art, only opinions. It allows humans to express their deepest emotions and thoughts without barriers or judgement.
In modern day society, we are constantly bombarded with information. With such fast-paced lifestyles, humans are slowly losing contact with nature and with their inner-self. Art provides a chance to reconnect, all the while giving us a chance to understand and accept change.
