Further Biographical Context for Girolamo Ciulla
Born in 1953, Girolamo Ciulla's creative work was predominantly influenced by the 1970s. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and development in the arts, most often characterised as a response to the dominant strains of the previous decade. Conceptual art emerged as a influential movement, a partial evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the artwork 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 considerations, creating cryptic and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain importance 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 respected figures worldwide. New York maintained an influential position in the international art world, ensuring that international artists continued to flock to the galleries, bars and downtown scene in the city. The largely Italian Arte Povera Movement gained world-wide recognition during the 1970s, with artists like Jannis Kounnelis, Mario Merz, and Michelangelo Pistoletto achieving worldwide acclaim.
