Enrico Prampolini, a multifaceted artist who from the 1930s started his artistic career characterized by two main moments, the first before the second postwar period, namely Polymaterism, and the second, cosmic idealism, as well as being a participant and promoter of concrete art movement, also known as MAC Parampolini looked at objects from a new point of view, no longer from the face or from behind, but at a sheer point, for a glimpse, putting aside the most literal and obvious idea of the Marinetti proposal, looking for to grasp another passage, that is the so-called land embraced by a single glance and deepening the concept of intuitive psychology of matter. Prampolini's goal was to spiritualize matter and orchestrate it harmoniously over the spatial surfaces, destined to enhance the human visions of our age with the live and direct contrast of the materials themselves, thus completely and integrally replacing the painted reality with the reality of matter. . To understand the emotional and evocative value of the materials themselves.
Multi-material art is a rudimentary, elementary means of artistic expression, whose evocative power is entrusted to the plastic orchestration of the material, understood in its biological immanence, as in its formal transcendence.
Matter-orgasm, an integral part of the polymaterial composition, whose formative elements tend to express continuity in discontinuity, dissonance and assonance of relationships. His discourse often insists on polymaterial applications in architecture.
In cosmic idealism, on the other hand, the perception of the animistic vitality of matter extends to a universal vision, which recalls the gensei of the world itself, of information matter, and it is no coincidence that some paintings from the series of cosmic idealism are made with polymaterials, such as the cosmic organism of 1930, repordered in polymaterial art.
Prampolini is therefore the artist who has contributed most to elaborating and extending in figurative terms some of the most revolutionary intuitions of Marinetti and thereby to opening up the conversion of painting to materials and objects, which has so strongly influenced art. of the last decades.
