Like all artists who were invited to design the interior of a room in Hotel Greif, Robert Bosisio was assigned a room by drawing lots. In addition to the floor plan he was told that in “his” room, No. 210, there would be a sumptuous red “Gabbeh” carpet.
Today this red carpet is the heart of the spacious room. It seems the perfect stage for the seating group on which the guest can sit and appear in the scene. One of the two works which Bosisio has created for Greif hangs over the couch.
His main subjects are interior spaces which allow him to portray an atmospheric scene on the one hand, while on the other, enable him to work with a basic geometric structure. Bosisio’s intention is to produce a pure and harmonious painting by adopting a process in which he adds layer after layer. He himself writes about his works produced for Greif:
‘These two interiors in yellow are intended to impart to the guest the feeling that he/she is too strongly influenced by the reflection of the large red carpet in the room.’
Behind the golden curtains, the colour of which has been chosen to match the paintings, guests can feast their eyes on the nearby mountains from the giant picture windows and from the private terrace. Here they can greet the new day, enjoy a good book in the sun, or savour a delicious glass of wine as a nightcap.
