In this exhibition a the Galería Helga de Alvear, Ettore Spalletti aims to withdraw from Minimalism, and reclaims his roots in the Italian Renaissance. Indeed, his colours are those of Piero de la Francesca or Fra Angelico, and his use of gold leaf—which could be severely criticized by Alberti—sets him definitely aside from Arte Povera. These are works that aim at beauty as an unequivocal form, that aspire to the sublime in an unquestionable manner, and that avoid coolness with a decisive commitment to sensuality. Here, every reflection, every highlight, every tactile sensation, is vital. Spalletti understands the contemplation of the art work as a relationship in which time and space do matter.
