Description

Enrico Castellani is one of the best known and most appreciated contemporary Italian artists also 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 founded, together with Agostino Bonalumi, the magazine "Azimuth", in 1959, the year of the first "Relief surfaces" by Castellani: monochrome canvases, mostly white, in which the artist goes in search of a spatiality beyond the canvas.

The work Superfice Bianca, made up of a canvas quilted on the back by wooden wedges, is one of the most interesting examples of Enrico Castellani's "spatialist" art. Pointing the canvas creates protrusions, recesses, protrusions that allude to a total space, on which light can flow and give rise to chiaroscuro vibrations. The latter continue beyond the physical contours of the work, thus denying the conventional two-dimensionality attributed to this pictorial support.

Location: room 7
