“The choice to represent the Art Embassy of Spain was very easy and, for me personally, the one to make, as I have a special affinity for the Spanish culture. During my travels around this country, I have come to understand this Mediterranean land, embraced by the sun and the sea and its temperamental culture, which is so charming that you just cannot say NO to it. I am proud to have been the host of Spanish artists since 2016. They leave behind spectacular sculptures and paintings which are an important part of the Art Circle collection and that of the Iaquin House.”

Nietzsche once wrote that “for art to exist, for any sort of aesthetic activity or perception to exist, a certain physiological precondition is indispensable: intoxication”. I wonder if he had in mind the art of wine making … . Art Circle was a brilliant idea: an art show putting together painters, winemakers and diplomats. It spurs the creation of a fresh, and very diverse, set of paintings, and puts artists in connection with colleagues from other countries. It also showcases the magnificent wines and landscapes of the Goriska Brda and Vipava areas. The region of Gorica/Nova gorica, in the heart of Europe, at the cusp of the Slavic, Latin, and Germanic worlds, will soon be the European capital of culture. In the case of Spain, the great Iaquin house has kindly hosted Spanish artists for many years, and since 2016 two dozens of Spanish artists have participated and contributed to Art Circle. I have personally had the opportunity of visiting the show on several occasions, and witness the excellent atmosphere and quality of the works presented.
