Lorenzo Puglisi. Monografia a cura di Marco Meneguzzo

The close relationship between ancient and contemporary, which characterizes the entire oeuvre of Lorenzo Puglisi (1971), constitutes an important viaticum for site-specific installations in places usually intended for museum use only, such as the Uffizi Galleries, the Rucellai Chapel and Santo Spirito in Florence, the sacristy of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, the island of San Servolo in Venice, and the crypt of St. Pancras Church in London. Elaborated, filtered, stripped down to their essence, the works from which he draws, immersed in the blackness of time and memory, are not so much a learned citation of the past or the testimony of a nostalgia for the great tradition of the masters, as a reflection on painting itself, on its ineradicable aspects and on the simultaneous need for a renewal of language. This volume by Marco Meneguzzo collects the last twenty years of the artist’s activity, completely dedicated to the search for this difficult balance between memory and the future of painting.
