ETTORE SPALLETTI "Ho visto con i miei occhi quanto è lontana la terra",
Lia Rumma

Ettore Spalletti was a seminal figure in Italian Minimalism and the Arte Povera movement, exploring geometry, precision, and the spiritual power of simple materials in his practice. In his extremely simple, painted columnar forms and monochromatic paintings, Spalletti simultaneously suggests classical structures and explores the formal qualities of paint. Favoring the impasto technique of traditional Italian painting for its depth of color and potential to yield extremely reflective surface textures, Spalletti applies paint to marble and other raw materials to create luminous and sublime three-dimensional paintings.
