Further Biographical Context for Salvador Gaudenti
Salvador Gaudenti was born in 1958 and was predominantly influenced creatively by the 1970s growing up. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and progress in the arts, most often characterised as a response to the dominant tensions 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 works of art into the expansive 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 esoteric and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain prominence 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 important position in the international art world, ensuring that global artists continued to flock to the galleries, bars and downtown scene in the city. 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, 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.
