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.
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!
La Galleria iSculpture è lieta di annunciare la presenza di Ivan Lardschneider con l’opera “Nodo alla Gola” ad Expo Arte Italiana, a cura del Prof. Vittorio Sgarbi. Luogo d’eccezione per questa importante iniziativa artistica è Villa Bagatti Valsecchi a Varedo (MB). Attraverso la promozione dell’arte contemporanea, la Fondazione La Versiera 1718, che ha indetto questa prima edizione di Expo Arte Italiana, ha come obiettivo il finanziamento del restauro e la valorizzazione della Villa Bagatti Valsecchi.
Un interessante e creativo processo di scambio fra un luogo ricco di storia, architettonico ed artistico, e la necessità dell’arte contemporanea di inserirsi in contesti differenti, sono fra le motivazioni di questo evento. La produzione artistica di Ivan Lardschneider si inserisce a pieno titolo in questo processo di scambio. Le sue opere hanno le radici nella tradizione, quella della scultura lignea gardenese, quello delle eleganti e raffinate figure religiose delle nostre chiese, ma l’artista se ne distacca grazie ad una sintassi artistica nuova ed unica. Lardschneider ci consente di tornare al senso primordiale di questa comunicazione perché usa un linguaggio semplice ed intuitivo. La sua figura lineare è assoluta, è ognuno di noi e non ha bisogno di altro se non dei gesti che sono i nostri, quelli di ogni giorno.
L’inaugurazione si terrà il 19 giugno alle ore 18.30 presso la Villa con il concerto di Klaus Savoldi Bellavitis accompagnato da l’Orchestra Filarmonica e diretta dal Maestro Maurizio Tambara. Dal 20 giugno fino al 31 ottobre la mostra sarà aperta al pubblico, dal martedì alla domenica dalle ore 10 alle 18.
iSculpture Gallery and Castello di Casole invite you to enjoy an event that will lead you to discover how the idea of beauty, related to balance and shapes changed through the centuries.The location of the SPA is not casual. This is where Castello di Casole, an ancient Etruscan settlement, chose to place some of the beautiful archaeological findings discovered in the past years.
We hope that you will enjoy this journey from a glorious past to nowadays.
