Davide Galbiati

Italy Born in: 1976

A sculpture is a moment stolen to the void as the stars are minutes conquered from infinity. Davide Galbiati's motionless figures take us into spaces where silent gravity reigns. Davide's surgeon hands patiently dissect concrete, stone and wood in order to discover the imprisoned souls.


Henri Focillon speaks of hands in this way: "They are almost animated beings. Handmaids? Perhaps. But endowed with an energetic and free genius, with a physiognomy - faces without eyes and without voice, but who see and speak. Some blind people eventually develop such finesse of tact that they are able to discern, by touching them, the figures of a deck of cards with the infinitesimal thickness of the image.

Davide is descended in direct forms from the sculptors of the Egypt of Osiris. His quest is identical. To carve into the fruit of the flesh in order to reach the pure core of the unspeakable. This ascetic prospective calls for the collected action of the meditative gesture. But this monastic posture of Davide does not put his imagination to sleep. The fabulous caps the purity of his esoteric figures. The fantastic flames in the statics of the works.

It is not enough to be a poet of the Sacred, it is necessary that the form be equal to the thought. Davide Galbiati, a sculptor in mystical enchantment, arranges by skilful plans the beaches where light and shadow dialogue. He offers us all his mysterious volumes with emotional forces that radiate from within and assert themselves in tension on the visible surface.


Davide Galbiati is a magician.

- Michel King, President of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts - Paris
