Sculture su ali di sogno per volare

Pierluigi Concheri è nato a Desenzano del Garda (Brescia) nel 1944 in un luogo dove l’acqua ed il vento erano i padroni assoluti. Sin da piccolo è stato attratto dal disegno (a quei tempi si disegnava su qualsiasi pezzo di carta capitasse sotto mano) e si impegnava a creare piccoli manufatti con pezzi di legno raccolti ovunque (anche sulle rive del lago) lavorandoli sotto la volta del grande portico della casa dei nonni. Da giovane ha frequentato prima l’Avviamento Industriale e poi l’I.T.I.S. Benedetto Castelli conseguendo il diploma di Perito Tecnico. La passione per l’arte però ha subito bussato prepotentemente alla porta facendosi sentire. Non ancora ventenne sono iniziati i primi lavori sia nel campo della pittura che della grafica dimostrando grande capacità. A breve è iniziata anche l’esperienza scultorea, prima con piccoli manufatti e poi con opere sempre più impegnative. Ventisettenne ha iniziato una “Via Crucis” per la chiesa di S. Girolamo a Padova (opera poi non portata a termine della quale comunque sono stati fusi in bronzo otto pannelli di altrettante stazioni). Autodidatta, come altri scultori di quegli anni, ha proseguito con fierezza e dignità non piegandosi a mode e lusinghe sperimentando nuove vie e nuovi materiali supportato anche da una notevole sua manualità. Ha vinto numerosi premi. Sue opere si possono ammirare presso privati come in luoghi pubblici. Tra le tante:

NATURA IN LIBERTA’ - scultura in pietra di Sarnico presso la frazione Pontasio del comune di Pisogne.

CITTA’ FERITA – grande scultura in legno creata per commemorare il 40° anniversario della strage di Piazza della Loggia posta presso la sede dell’ACLI Provinciale di Brescia

COLUI CHE HA DATO TUTTO PER NOI – crocifisso ligneo collocato presso la Chiesa di S. Giovanna Antida - Parrocchia della Torricella – Brescia

NIKOLAJEWKA – grande scultura lignea realizzata per commemorare il 75° anniversario della battaglia di Nikolajewka posta nell’omonima scuola.

Sculptures on dream wings to fly

Pierluigi Concheri was born in Desenzano del Garda (Brescia) in 1944 in a place where water and wind were the absolute masters. From an early age he was attracted to drawing (in those days he drew on any piece of paper that came to hand) and he undertook to create small artifacts with pieces of wood collected everywhere (even on the shores of the lake) working them under the vault of the large portico of the grandparents' house. As a young man he first attended the Industrial Start-up and then the I.T.I.S. Benedetto Castelli obtaining the diploma of Technical Expert. The passion for art, however, immediately knocked forcefully on the door making itself heard. Not yet twenty, the first works both in the field of painting and graphics began, demonstrating great ability. The sculptural experience also began shortly, first with small artifacts and then with increasingly demanding works. At the age of twenty-seven he began a "Via Crucis" for the church of S. Girolamo in Padua (a work that was never completed, however eight panels of as many stations were cast in bronze). Self-taught, like other sculptors of those years, he continued with pride and dignity not bowing to fashions and flattery, experimenting with new ways and new materials also supported by his remarkable dexterity. He has won numerous awards. Works by him can be admired in both private and public places. Among many:

NATURE IN FREEDOM - sculpture in Sarnico stone in the Pontasio district of the municipality of Pisogne.

WOUNDED CITY – large wooden sculpture created to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the massacre in Piazza della Loggia placed at the headquarters of the Provincial ACLI of Brescia

The shapes, mysteriously emerging from his hands, refer to all the secrets of the workshop, where the sculptor, dusty, disheveled craftsman, curses and curses the material that does not want to yoke itself to the enterprise. All sculptors grumble and grumble about marble that is too hard or wood that is too crooked and fibrous. But just before facing them, as if to overcome their hardness, they caress them, as if they were living bodies, flattering their veins, scrutinizing their color tones, admiring their innate signs with which they have been formed who knows where. This is what Pierluigi Concheri does, in his cave full of iron and tools, preferring the rough effort to the light touch of the canvas painters. From these withdrawn and insensitive materials emerge (and the artist will never tell you how) extraordinarily lively softnesses, flowing in waves, curves at the limit of flight, hollows that softly sink into oceans of lightness or sudden voids, like whirlpools that contrast the surface. Concheri's sculpture is extremely elegant, refined, delicate: he would almost like to be touched, to feel, with his fingertips, the fineness of his features, the grace of his movements. Her surfaces are the smooth and precious skin of a very classy woman, a little haughty, aware of her beauty. One could believe that the variety of shapes are like the curious flow of changing moods, the sudden variation of the character of this difficult and capricious, inconstant and fickle lady. But the clarity of the drawing, the harmony of the marked spaces, the synthesis of the forms, she calls to another conclusion, more meditated and true. Concheri pursues, without brazenly declaring it, but keeping it within himself, as if it were a secret to be discovered, an intimate desire for humility, without any complacency, without any reflection, deriving only from a natural tendency, from an innate character, which involuntarily turns towards a simplicity essential, primitive, native. Then the last modesty falls and suddenly nails and sutures intersect the wave of the story: they are wounds that demonstrate unexpected suffering, seams that aspire to reunite what has been unjustly separated. On the raised scaffolding of pain, where sometimes the natural color of the wood turns into red, however the innate simplicity does not yield, which soothes everything and leads back to hope, in high soft and subtle joints, carried away by purity. Robert Paderno


Pierluigi Concheri, sculptor of the wind whose thought takes shape in wood, marble and metals. His emotions, his memories are represented by him in a dreamy reality tangibly made concrete by the materials: the material immortalizes his paths of remembrance, dream, effort, dust, conflict, life experiences. The search for spiritual and emotional freedom is immortalized in the "flight" represented by vibrant, idealized ethereal and at the same time material wings: because each of us has a pair of wings but only those who dream learn to fly. The works are connected by a thin thread that he knows how to lead to soft melancholy, to yearnings for joy, to dark moments of discouraged pain, to flashes of light. Then the gaze is flooded by the sweetness and naturalness with which the artist plays, gets confused, molds the liveliest materials of nature: wood with its nuances, its concentric labyrinths of ribs, the always and only warm tones given to it by life , marbles, rocks, crystals skilfully modeled, smoothed, polished so that they express all the wonder of their history becoming a mirror of the artist's own history. This is Pierluigi Concheri: master of conjunction between image and imagination, between memories and dreams.

Pierluigi Concheri, THE CHARM OF CLASSICISM IN MODERN SCULPTURE

Sculpture as an art form always has its charm. We think of the classical sculptures interpreters of the philosophical concept of beauty; to the Renaissance workshops where artisans of the material, with various often even not very refined tools, created works destined to remain over time, a symbol of an era, an expression of society and its way of thinking and experiencing art. Vasari, painter, architect and Renaissance art historian, in his historiographical work "The lives of the most excellent painters, sculptors and architects" defined sculpture as the form of art which, by removing the superfluous from matter, reduces it to the shape of the body according to the idea conceived by its creator. Even for Michelangelo the figure was a prisoner of matter, just as for Plato the soul was a prisoner of the body, and it was precisely sculpture that let the form emerge, gradually discovering the subject. Over the years the techniques have evolved, the approach of the craftsman-artist has changed in the comparison of this form of art, the materials have changed, and also the way of thinking about sculpture. Pierluigi Concheri is a contemporary sculptor who combines ancient and modern in a personal artistic language in which the abstract work in the formal aspect preserves the realism of its meaning, Creativity and manual skill characterize his work. Curious towards all those materials that nature offers, he takes inspiration from it, to subsequently study and learn the techniques for working them. He begins the research and the assembly of the pieces. The drawing, a sketch on any piece of paper to jot down one's reflections, the study of proportions, volumes, shadows. But first of all this intuition, the need to follow one's sensations. The creation of a sculpture, the assembly of materials that thus take shape is for Pierluigi Concheri the need to give body and soul to matter. The artist conveys in the sculpture what he feels. “Sculpture - he says - is a strange alchemy of sensations, emotions, memories, second thoughts, intimate conflicts, sweat, effort and dust; even pain." By shaping and modeling wood, marble and metal, Concheri generates forms characterized by an alternation of solids and voids, on which time acts, the light enters and the breath of the wind seems to rest its breath. Pierluigi Concheri blends classicism and innovation in his artistic creations. From the formal minimalism that borders on the stylization of the image, the energy of movement is released both in the imposing large sculptures and in the smaller pieces that can be adapted to different environments. The artist captures the essence of the material by personalizing it in an image capable of evoking sensations. In fact, the greatest reward for an artist is being able to communicate through their works, arousing emotions in those who observe them. Roberta Filippi

Pierluigi Concheri, Gestural nature

One of the most valuable qualities that can characterize the artistic activity of a sculptor, or even of a painter, is that of being able to make his work coincide with the reality that surrounds him and, therefore, communicate through it his own background and your own existing. Pierluigi Concheri is an artist from Desenzano del Garda and throughout his life he let himself be inspired by the erosive action of water and wind that has always shaped objects with expressive forms on the shores of the lake. Trained as a self-taught Concheri has been able to find his own aesthetic by looking at this natural action, trying to understand its dynamics, movements and, above all, its poetics. Over the centuries one of the main objectives of artistic making has always been that of mimesis, or the imitation of nature: even that of Pierluigi Concheri can be defined, without a doubt, a mimetic work, which however tries to imitate nature not in its sensible forms, but precisely in its actions and in its transformative processes. It is a profound investigation that of the sculptor from Desenzano for which the artist's gesture overlaps perfectly with the work of nature. However, it must be specified that this action is by no means slavish and that Concheri knows how to govern natural action, shaping it according to his own aesthetic needs. Thus it is always possible to find different points and stimuli in the analysis of Concheri's sculptures, also because his production varies in the use of different materials (wood, marble, metal). In works such as "Giungo da te", "Forma primigenia" or "White wind" the artist seems, symbolically, to leave carte blanche to the wind and water in the creation of balanced and harmonious structures in an informal aesthetic full of generative values primordial. In other creations the anthropic desire to reproduce the natural process is felt more strongly, but to model it according to more geometric almost mechanomorphic aesthetic requests paradoxically ("The tree of sounds or of music", "It's a long story", "Blue dream"). Finally, in other works, Concheri plays with the elements of nature, transforming what could be pieces of wood found on the lake shore into female figures (“Lady G”) or stylized cities (the “Shared Spaces” series).
