Description

Enrico Castellani is one of the most famous Italian contemporary artists and also appreciated abroad. After the first experiences inspired by American Action Painting, he approaches the "spatialism" of Lucio Fontana and the provocative art of the exuberant friend Piero Manzoni.

Castellani and Manzoni will fond, together with Agostino Bonalumi, the magazine "Azimuth", in 1959, year of the first "relief surfaces" of Castellani: monochrome canvases, mostly white, in which the artist goes looking for a spatiality beyond the canvas.

The white surface work, consisting of a quilted canvas on the back from wooden wedges, is one of the most interesting examples of Enrico Castellani's "space" art. Pointing the canvas are created extrophety, recesses, protrusions that allude to a total space, on which the light can flow and give rise to chiaroscural vibrations. The latter continue beyond the physical contours of the work, thus denying conventional two-dimensionality attributed to this pictorial support.

Location: Room n.7
