London’s Dominique Lévy gallery will exhibit work by one of Italy’s most important living artists, Enrico Castellani.
The exhibition will explore the three-dimensional potentialities of painting as seen in a selection of Castellani’s large-scale relief canvases as well as his metallic paintings. By drawing attention to the ambient light, these three-dimensional works will activate the architectural space of the exhibition center, a key theme in Castellani’s work.
Born in Castelmassa in 1930, Enrico Castellani was a key figure in the European postwar avant garde, and is regarded as one of Italy’s most important living artists. In 2010 became the first Italian artist ever to receive the Praemium Imperial for Painting.
The exhibit opens February 2016 at Dominique Lévy’s Bond Street space.
