Further Biographical Context for Francisco Carrillo

Francisco Carrillo was born in 1954 and was primarily influenced creatively by the 1970s. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and growth in the arts, most often characterised as a response to the dominant strains of the preceding decade. Conceptual art emerged as a influential movement, and was in part an evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the works of art into the spacious 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 esoteric and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain importance 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 respected figures worldwide. New York maintained an prominent position in the international art world, ensuring that international artists continued to gravitate to the galleries, bars and downtown scene there. 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 unaltered, transient conditions. The works focused on the interplay between these various elements and the surrounding space, and had a strong focus upon the European ideas of phenomenology.
