Giuliano Gaigher

Biography

The personal artistic way of Giuliano Gaigher (Treviglio , 1964) describes a development, both technic and communicative.
On the technical side, Gaigher’s fascination for material is always really¬†present in his productions.

His works in casting glass are exceptional and apart in style and materials employed, evidence of special light and color games.
Every single piece is a personal message.

In the first scultures it is witnessed by glass textures , later it is revealed by the suspension of the forms in the space through metallic webs ; more recently it expresses itself in a polimateric fusion into which different fors and materials are mixed as the final result of a long aesthetic research.

It is possible to describe this evolution like a journey from culture to nature.
Culture is the product of the artist : here he can appear and to be valued.
Nature is a partially already built reality, needing to be actualized by the artist himself : as Aristoteles said, the artist has to develop what is already existing inside the material. That is the art of discovery, as a maieutic act.

On the communication side, after his first more figurative (even if ‘geometrical’) works, Gaigher is refining his language : it becomes
evocative, centred on the role of imagination whose symbolic aim is feed and close the meaning.
