Further Biographical Context for José Ney Mila Espinosa
José Ney Mila Espinosa was born in 1959, grew up during the 1970s and was influenced by the artistic culture of the time. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and progress in the arts, most often characterised as a response to the dominant stresses of the previous 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 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 mysterious 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 influential figures worldwide. New York maintained an prominent 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 explored on encounters between natural and industrial materials such as stone, glass, cotton, sponge, wood, oil and water, arranging them in mostly unchanged, fleeting conditions. The works focused on the interdependency of these various elements and the surrounding space, and had a strong interest in the European ideas of phenomenology.
