About the Artists

1946 Benevento, Italy

Enzo Esposito was born in Benevento in 1946. After studying at the Academy of Naples, his interests immediately turned to conceptual art. Its points of reference are in particular two: on the one hand, the use of white, intended as the sum and zeroing of all colors, the color symbol of Piero Manzoni; on the other, Viennese actionism, in which the protagonist was the body of the artists subjected to actual torture practices. But in him there is rather an evocation of the laceration, understood not as a desperate existential denunciation of the ailments of modern man, but as an overcoming of limits.

The concept of Dépense is also fundamental, meaning by this the expression of emotions and passions pushed to the loss of oneself, to ecstasy. This is what Esposito thinks, speaking of exceeding the limits. And this, as an artist, entails opposition to an idea of ​​art dominated by aseptic conceptual rationalism. His paintings are built starting from an elementary sign which, by replicating itself, tends to expand up to invade all the surrounding space. It is no coincidence that Renato Barilli, with the never forgotten Francesca Alinovi, invites him, in 1979, to the exhibition Ambiente Ambiente. Furthermore, Catherine Millet wants him at Baroques 81. Renato Barilli himself places him among the Nuovi Nuovi, a group of extraordinary importance.

In the meantime, a new four-sided sign takes shape, reminiscent of a door, a passage, an overcoming of the canvas towards the bottom, an evolution of the idea of ​​laceration to which his work refers from the beginning. To allow this sign to fully unfold, the painting overflows, so much so that the painter is forced to add pieces of table to the canvas.
