Further Biographical Context for Bruno Ceccobelli
Born in 1952, Bruno Ceccobelli grew up during the 1970s and was inspired by the artistic culture of the time. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and development in the arts, most often defined as a response to the central strains of the preceding decade. Conceptual art developed as a influential movement, and was in part an evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the works of art into the extensive outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and looking to engage with the earliest ideas of environmentalism. Process art combined elements of conceptualism with other formal reflections, creating cryptic and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain prominence for the first time since the decline of Abstract Expressionism twenty years before, especially in Germany where Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz became highly influential figures worldwide. A number of the artists who gained fame and successful in the 1960s remained leading figures. For example, Andy Warhol branched out into film and magazine publishing, the first kind of cross cultural activity for a visual artist. This secured his reputation as a major international celebrity in his own right. n Japan and Korea, artists associated with the Mono-Ha movement explored on encounters between natural and industrial materials such as stone, glass, cotton, sponge, wood, oil and water, arranging them in mostly unchanged, fleeting states. The works focused on the interdependency of these various elements and the surrounding space, and had a strong focus upon the European ideas of phenomenology.
