Mainolfi, Luigi (ITA)

Fragment from a text by Rudi Fuchs about Mainolfi's work: 'They are visual fairy-tales, the works of Mainolfi. Tender inventions. Mainolfi is a very gentle artist. After Minimal Art and large-scale Pop painting, the idea lingered on that modern Art should be tough and dramatic. Gentleness with materials and gentleness with details (so that also small thing remain intact and are not forgotten) is not, at present, an easy position. The drama of the World, as it now is, seems to command a different, a more heroic attitude.' (from the website of Luigi Mainolfi - introduction)
