Further Biographical Context for Beppe Caturegli
Beppe Caturegli was born in 1957 was primarily influenced by the distinctive cultural milieu of 1970s. The art sphere of the 1970s was epitomized by a longing to grow and strengthen itself, as a reaction to the many tensions of the previous decade. One of the most central movement of the 1970s was Conceptualism, which emerged as an offshoot of Minimalism, while the experimental, creative voyage of Process art emerged by combining essential elements of Conceptualism with further reflections on art itself. The initial ideas of environmentalism bounced from Land Art, which took art into earth itself, carving the land and bringing art to the outdoors. For the first time since the decline of Abstract Expressionism, Expressive figure painting slowly resurfaced and regained its status, especially in Germany through the works of world renowned figures Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer and Georg Baselitz. Most of the leading artistic figures of the 1960s remained greatly influential and popular throughout the 1970s. Andy Warhol, for example, secured his status as a legendary artist, by branching out into film and magazine publishing, thus instituting a ground-breaking concept of cross-cultural activity for a visual artist of such fame. In the eastern part of the globe, Japanese and Korean artists who showed a strong interest in the European ideas of phenomenology, allied with the Mono-Ha movement, exploring and shifting the boundaries between natural and industrial materials. Using stone, glass, cotton, sponge, wood, oil and water, they intended to create life to artworks that would accentuate the ephemeral state of these various elements and their surroundings, playing with their interdependency.
