Following his first exhibition in 2014, iSculpture Gallery is pleased to present the solo exhibition “Soul” by Gerald Moroder, which will be held at Museum of Chiusa (Capuchin monastery): 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.

iSculpture Gallery is pleased to present the solo exhibition “Journey into synthesis”by Wilhelm Heiliger that will be held at the headquarters in San Gimignano (SI). The Catalogue, printed by the Gallery, will be presented during the opening.
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.
Opening on October the first at 6.00 p.m. with the presence of the artist.

The exhibition by Mariano Fuga was also the occasion for the inauguration of our new exhibiting spaces in San Gimignano. The previous tower hall has been joined by three further rooms, for a unique display setting. You will be able to see more artists and more selected art works and the most important thing is that the gallery is today accessible from Via San Giovanni, 56, San Gimignano’s main street!
This purpose was possible thanks to you, believing in our art selection and work; we want to thank you so much again.
Some months ago we visited the exhibition “HUMAN”, over one hundred works by Antony Gormley in Florence’s 16th century fortress, Forte di Belvedere. Sculptures are positioned throughout the interior and courtyards to occupy every part of the Forte, positioned to resonate with the building’s scale and mass.
Enjoy some pictures!

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: Patrick Alò, Davide Dall’Osso, Mariano Fuga, Ivan Lardschneider, Gerald Moroder, Sergio Rubini… More information and pictures are available on our website.
We hope that you will enjoy!
