LA PIENA DELL’OCCHIO (THE FLOOD OF THE EYE) BY ENRICO MINGUZZI
On 23 September, in the rooms of the Ex Convento di San Francesco in Bagnacavallo, the exhibition La piena dell’occhio, a solo show by Enrico Minguzzi curated by Saverio Verini, opens to the public.
More than forty paintings and sculptures, realised by the artist between 2021 and 2022, to understand an artistic research made of superimpositions.
The fullness of the eye
The title of the exhibition may sound strange, but it actually alludes to the overflow of images.
The flooding of the eye refers precisely to the inundation of images and three-dimensional forms in the rooms of the Ex Convento, which appear as silent yet intrusive presences.
Enrico Minguzzi is an artist who works between figuration and abstraction.
His pictorial imagery is composed of superimpositions of veils, thin layers of colour, outlining a series of suspended forms.
While he confronts the great figurative tradition of the 19th century, he also describes a mysterious reality.
Enrico Minguzzi’s works are almost portraits of the natural world, reminiscent of something that exists in nature, but is actually the brainchild of the artist.
These elements seem unarmed, photographed in a precise instant, but one has the feeling that life pulses within them and wants to escape from the confined space of two-dimensionality.
In addition to the series of paintings, Minguzzi has chosen to flank a body of unpublished sculptures and it is here that he gives his images three-dimensionality.
In a ‘reverse’ process, he translates paintings into sculpture by experimenting with new techniques and materials, thus opening up further developments in his artistic practice.
