Further Biographical Context for Carlo Carosso
Born in 1953, Carlo Carosso was predominantly inspired by the 1970s. The art sphere of the 1970s was epitomized by a desire to grow and reinforce itself, as a reaction to the many tensions of the previous decade. One of the most central movement of the 1970s was Conceptualism, which appeared as an offshoot of Minimalism, while the experimental, creative journey of Process art emerged by combining essential elements of Conceptualism with further considerations on art itself. The earliest 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 regression of Abstract Expressionism, Expressive figure painting slowly resurfaced and regained its prominence, predominantly in Germany through the works of critically acclaimed figures Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer and Georg Baselitz. Most of the leading artistic figures of the 1960s remained highly influential and popular throughout the 1970s. Andy Warhol, for example, secured his status as a legendary artist, by bifurcating into film and magazine publishing, thus introducing a ground-breaking concept of cross-cultural activity for a visual artist of such popularity In the eastern part of the globe, Japanese and Korean artists who showed a strong interest in the European philosophy 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 give life to artworks that would accentuate the ephemeral state of these various elements and their surroundings, playing with their interdependency.
