'My surfaces in canvas, laminated plastic or other materials, sculpturally dematerialized by the lack of colour as an element of the composition, tend to modulate themselves and accept the third dimension that makes them perceptible. Light is now a tool of this perception: contingent form and intensity are abandoned to its fortuity. But because they are no longer part of the dominion of paiting or scale down its space, they are the reflection of the total interior space, without contradictions, to which we tend. Thus they exist -insofar as they are objects that may be assimilated instantly- for the duration of an act of communion before time confines them to their material precariousness' (Enrico Castellani, quoted in G. Celant (ed.), Enrico Castellani 1958-1970, exh. cat., Milan 2001, p. 149).
