Description
Superficie bianca. 1994. Acrylic on reliefed canvas over panel, originally mounted on fiber board. Wirz/Sardella 775. Verso signed and dated. 34 x 42 cm (13.3 x 16.5 in). Fiber board: 50 x 50 cm (19,7 x 19,7 in). • Wonderful, lightly floating composition that impresses with its three-dimensional minimalism and soft lighting. • From a small series of paintings in which Castellani brings his famous principle of "Superficie trapunta" into symbiosis with that of the "Shaped canvas". • Castellani, one of the protagonists of the Italian "ZERO" movement, made art history with his unique "Superfici trapunte". Accompanied by a photo confirmation issued by the Archivio Castellani May 17, 1995. PROVENANCE: Private collections Pordenone (around 1995). Private collection Italien (around 2012). Private collection. Private collection Berlin (inherited from aforementioned). LITERATURE: M. Luzi, 15 superfici bianche di Enrico Castellani, Rex Built In, Udine 1994, p. 11. "To me white is not a color but rather the absence of it. Through the treatment of the surface I try to attain an utmost degree of objectivity in my pictures, and the same accounts for the color. White to me is the one color, or rather non-color, that makes this objectivation best possible." Enrico Castellani in an interview with L. Vincenti, 1983. Called up: December 11, 2020 - ca. 15.29 h +/- 20 min.
