Further Biographical Context for Carlo Cane
Born in 1951, Carlo Cane was largely influenced by the 1970s growing up. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and development in the arts, most often characterised as a response to the central stresses of the preceding decade. Conceptual art developed as a key movement, and was in part an evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the artwork into the expansive outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and engaging with the earliest ideas of environmentalism. Process art combined elements of conceptualism with other formal reflections, creating mysterious and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain prominence for the first time since the decline of Abstract Expressionism twenty years prior, especially in Germany where Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz became highly powerful figures worldwide. New York maintained an important position in the international art scene, ensuring that global artists continued to gravitate to the galleries, bars and downtown scene there. n Japan and Korea, artists associated with the Mono-Ha movement focused on encounters between natural and industrial materials such as stone, glass, cotton, sponge, wood, oil and water, arranging them in mostly unchanged, ephemeral states. The works focused on the interplay between these various elements and the surrounding space, and had a strong interest in the European philosophy of phenomenology.
