Georg Viktor: Nuda Pietra

ISculpture Gallery is pleased to present the solo exhibition “Nuda Pietra” by Georg Viktor, that will be held at the headquarters in San Gimignano (SI). The Catalogue, bringing the text of Patrick Pii will be available at the opening. “Viktor links up to a classicism in which the portrayals of eroticism and the sexual act were much more than merely accepted, being propitiatory to fertility, related to practices of worship or, more simply, descriptive of everyday habits. (…)Viktor, like many other great modern and contemporary artists, aims to overcome the limits. The material used is almost always diaphanously and harmoniously white Carrara marble, emphasising the purity within us all, along with trouble and restlessness, with which it contrasts.”
Solo Exhibition: iSculpture Art Gallery San Gimignano | September 23rd – October 14th, 2016
Opening on September 23rd at 6.00 p.m. with the presence of the artist.

Gerald Moroder: Soul - iSculpture Gallery San Gimignano

Click to enlarge
Following his first exhibition in 2014, iSculpture Gallery is pleased to present the solo exhibition "Soul" by Gerald Moroder: nine new works - small and large sculptures and sculptural panels - realized between 2016 and 2017.
The title Soul highlights the theme that runs through his work, so that the layout of the exhibition is crossed by a vital tension and an innate yearning turned to a spiritual dimension. His human figures, emaciated and essential in form, are stretched outward looking, looking for a way, a revelation. They are images of human essence, timeless figures, devoid of characteristics that connect to a space and an era, are archaic contemporaries. He comes from Val Gardena and yet he is not tied to the wood carving tradition of his valley; in fact, he works with a mixture of sand, iron and porphyry stone – materials that, in themselves, maintain history. Even the material has embarked on its own exploration: It consists of particles, becomes stratified and oxidizes thus abandoning part of itself in order to welcome the new.

Wilhelm Heiliger: Journey into synthesis

Click to enlarge

Solo Exhibition: iSculpture Art Gallery San Gimignano | September 29th – October 30th, 2016


The relationship between shape and colour is the foundation of the history of art, during which it undergoes changes and analyses of every kind. From the classical age to the present day, we have witnessed the elaboration of various artistic perspectives, but they have always outlined a relationship of strict subordination of colour to shape. It is essential to ensure the comprehension of a certain type of message and, in this sense, colour is used almost to merely fill in the shape which provides the outlines. Colour is essentially assigned the role of dictating depth, softness or transparency, and of emphasising the aesthetic sense of artists and their work. With artists like Rothko and Pollock, or even earlier with the impressionists, we witness the attempt to make colour the true protagonist of the expressive medium, assigning it a central role in the composition, trying to detach it from the usual sense of shape. The colour palette is broken down and analysed in the tiniest detail, with a view to generating grace and balance. But would this balance continue to exist without shape? The answer lies in the consideration that however colour is used, every time it is applied to any surface, it generates a mark or a shape, albeit abstract. Its dimension and position in relation to other colours create the final result and together they determine the visual and aesthetic balance, or otherwise. In the works of Wilhelm Heiliger, we see a summary of these concepts, where photographic detail, a subject which is absolutely visible in objective reality, becomes shape, and digital chromatic processing accentuates or dissimulates the contours, to the point where it can even eliminate them, conveying new meanings and suggestions to the image every time. A roof becomes a dividing line with the blue sky, a shell, a flash of light, merging into abstractions which allow subjective poetic interpretations. In this sense, the concept of “shape” is dramatically changed in Heiliger’s works. It is no longer a container, a contour which fixes a somehow pre-existing content and makes it perceivable and transmissible. It opposes the absence of form and circumscribes void. This battle does not, however, consist in a suppression of antagonistic power – this can only happen in mediocre and definitively pacified art. In the authentic work of art, language does not abolish – it includes the non-language or the shapeless. iSculpture Gallery is pleased to offer its spaces to Wilhelm’s real yet fantastic works. We could ask ourselves what induces a gallery which deals exclusively with sculptures to present works that are apparently so far-removed from its usual proposal. The answer to this question lies in the desire to emphasise the importance of the relationship between shape and colour, concepts which are an absolute part of sculpture. The gallery also wants to open up to other forms of expression, to which alternative projects will be regularly dedicated in the future, highlighting once again the absolute non-existence of boundaries to beauty and art.

Mariano Fuga: Risalita

Click to enlarge

Solo Exhibition: iSculpture Art Gallery San Gimignano | September 26th – October 18th, 2015

iSculpture Gallery is pleased to present the solo exhibition "Risalita/Resurgence" by Mariano Fuga, that will be held at the headquarters in San Gimignano (SI). The Catalogue, bringing the text of Nico Stringa, Professor of Contemporary Art History at the University Ca 'Foscari in Venice, will be presented during the opening. With the new artistic project Resurgence, the "Figures" by Fuga are no longer individual actors, but face and engage with the world around them, as expressed through spherical and hemispherical shapes, either concave or convex. The "Excercises of Resurgence", title of the works bearing witness different stages of moments of life, are, as Prof. Stringa underlines," Acrobats in love with space and colour; unprecedented colours, as far as I know, in Italian contemporary ceramics; and spaces, just as new, despite being under the eyes of all " Unlike the series of "Theatres" at the end of the nineties, where the legacy of traditional folk pottery is exasperated by the gestures of the characters that boxes them in perspective rigor of the off-stage, in these new creations by Mariano, we can feel the desire for new experiments. And also different from previous works, such as "Divers" or "Flyers", Resurgence has had the courage to face the search for a relationship between form and space, volumes and colors and, therefore, to give a space, that is no more forcing and limiting his figures. Moreover, "Bricks" and "Columns" with figures could not be missing in the exhibition, with the whistles belonging to the tradition of the Venetian Cuchi, of which Mariano is considered one of the representatives. At the same time you can visit the installation of five "Columns", as part of "Sculptures for a scene of Art", on display in the beautiful setting of the Castello di Casole in Casole d'Elsa (Siena). Opening on September 26th at 6.00 p.m. with the presence of the artist.

Sculptures for a Scenery of Art

Click to enlarge
Sculptures for a Scenery of Art is the result of a collaboration between Hotel Castello di Casole and iSculpture Gallery, San Gimignano & Casole d’Elsa.
Our aim is to pay homage to a landscape that is a work of art itself for its beauty and tradition, through a course of six contemporary art installations by six different Italian artists.
The gardens of the Hotel Castello di Casole thus become a place of interaction between contemporary sculpture and the many breathtaking views that the care and the Tuscan centuries-old tradition contributed to transmit in its uniqueness.
The area surrounding the hotel has among other things greatly benefited from the recently completed Hotel restructuring, through the recovery of many rural properties and the impulse to quality agriculture.
Each year the event will allow the participation of various Italian artists with the intent to provide a varied and changing artistic proposal. This first edition involves the works of the following artists: Patrick Alò, Davide Dall’Osso, Mariano Fuga, Ivan Lardschneider, Gerald Moroder, Sergio Rubini.

Mens Sana in Corpore Sano - A group exhibition at Castello di Casole

Click to enlarge
iSculpture Gallery and Castello di Casole invite you to enjoy an event the will lead you to discover how the idea of beauty, related to balance and shapes changed through the centuries.
We have talked about beauty in every century, but depending on the era, despite the arithmetic and geometric principles that were asserted, its interpretation and representation have always been changing. The people who knew how to raise the care of the body to eternal symbol of his unquestionable and aristocratic charm is the Etruscan: thermal baths, perfumes, ointments, medicinal herbs and cosmetics art with its fairy tools. The powerful Etruscan women who, despised by the Greeks and the Romans, were held in esteem by the family of which they were the focus, they pulled the strings of politics, tickling the ambitions and, when necessary, were driving the chariot. This is also reflected in the artistic production, in fact in the Etruscan sculpture we notice a total absence of formal research. It has no value in itself as a work of art, but that is for the practical meaning that you want to give. The Etruscans were famous amongst their contemporaries for their bronze sculptures and a great attention to the quality and technical production of their works. The thin and dematerialized sculptures of Gerald Moroder are a perfect synthesis of everything. With his research on materials, the earth, the stone, the mixture of wood, the sculptor wants to experience each time differently, pervaded by the moods that he can pick up in nature. The beauty of forms becomes later, again in the Etruscan culture, something that shows the inner world, the strength and inner characteristics. And the intent is clear, with its social importance; the sculptor wanted to give form to both inner and outer conflicts which, every day, were suffered by women. Women with a soul full of intricate feelings and hidden desires, but strong dreamers who struggle and strive to add value to the society: we find these characteristics in the Warrior-Women by Sergio Rubini. Witness of our time, the story told by the artist is old and yet inexorably present. In a totally opposite to that of the Etruscans, the Classical Greek Woman was totally subservient to man. When she reached the age to marry, she passed from the father’ authority to that of her husband. The male body was considered much more erotic, sensual, graceful, and was elevated to a model of harmony and perfect proportions. Despite of this. even the female body seen through Greek art was of great beauty and harmony, with perfect proportions and good samples can be seen in the many depictions of girls at a young age or beautiful goddesses with mature bodies depicting love (Venus). The same search for beauty, understood as the search for the perfect proportions, is found in all artistic production of Georg Victor. His bodies, made of Carrara marble, are the synthesis of the perfection existing in nature. His figures are a tribute to beauty, the bodies he shapes become “The Angels of Beauty”, although fragmentary, as if they had just returned to light after a long and arduous excavation. Seeking for the interpretation of Beauty through the ages, understood as a proportion of the forms, we come to neoclassicism, of which Canova is its ultimate expression. The constant artistic production is a degree of perfection, according to which, beauty lies in the proportion of the parts. The aim of the artist is to achieve the ideal beauty to which we can get through the imitation of classical sculpture. We find the same approach in the work of sculptor Smail Zizi. His works represent women, carved in white Carrara marble, pink from Portugal and black from Belgium, representing the female universe with great precision. His search for Ideal Beauty, that is a perfect combination of human and divine, can only come from a greater control of passions and senses. Same is the approach of Simona Ragazzi, but with a completely contemporary point of view and interpretation. The body made by the artist is fake. it is the sum of classical perfection combined with the contemporary plastic surgery. This kind of research leads her to transform the body into a consumer product, and as such, she inserts a bar code in the lower part of her sculptures.
