Minguzzi’s marriage of opposites

For the first time, noted Italian artist Enrico Minguzzi visits Manila for his first exhibition, Flos, which showcases the nexus of the natural world, the imagination and the celestial domains.

Art lovers will be enthralled by the exhibit ongoing until 2 December.

Following the triumph of his solo show, The Flood of the Eye, in Italy, Minguzzi embarks on a new artistic endeavor with Flos.

The collection defies conventional classification by presenting mysterious beings that stretch the bounds of the material world.

The dialogue between the foreground and background is amplified by Minguzzi’s unique oil painting technique, which results in images that highlight a singular “marriage of opposites.”

Minguzzi does not use preparatory sketches or photographic references. Instead, his meticulous observation of the outside world is central to his creative process.

Ideas flow directly from the artist’s mind onto the canvas, enabling a spontaneous creative dialogue that reveals a plethora of possibilities until each piece asserts its own completion.

According to Minguzzi, the evolution of his style was an internal epiphany, similar to how a person’s character emerges through unwavering commitment and direction from his inner artist.

Flos highlights the universal resonance firmly ingrained in nature by allowing viewers to interpret Minguzzi’s creations through a variety of cultural lenses.

The accessibility of Minguzzi’s subject matter aligns with humanity’s shared connection to nature, even though he does not cater his art to particular audiences.

Notably, the esteemed Fondazione Coppola, founded in 2018 by businessman and art patron Antonio Coppola, has recognized Minguzzi’s creative journey.

The Icona Prize was given by the foundation in honor of Minguzzi’s contributions, which included the piece D’oro decoro. Painting is liberated into space by Minguzzi’s work, which permits pictorial content to surpass the artist’s intention.

This serves as a metaphor for a painting’s ongoing genre oscillation and reflects the ever-evolving field of art today.

Minguzzi’s paintings in Flos, which are frequently hybrid materials, look at the intersections between the plant, animal and celestial domains.

The subtle realism of his subjects is juxtaposed with vibrant backgrounds painted in striking monochromatic hues, allowing viewers to delve into the unfathomable beauty and chaos of a world where the lines between reality and fantasy are blurred.

The Flos exhibition by Enrico Minguzzi challenges viewers’ conceptions of reality and delves into the extraordinary, serving as an affirmation to the artist’s limitless imagination.

The collection is a vibrant celebration of Minguzzi’s talent and his never-ending quest to push the limits of artistic expression.
