In 2006, Enrico Castellani at age 76 began a groundbreaking body of work in cast aluminum, bringing his renowned Superficie (surface) series into the realm of sculpture. The present work, Superficie rossa (2006) is among the first of this new group and was created the year that Castellani initiated this inventive series. The complex, tensile surface of this work transmutes the artist’s lifelong investigation of topography from the domain of painting into a new, fully sculptural form, furthering his experimental fusion of space, light, and architecture.

…[A] true and profound attitude of the mind, contemplating the mystery of matter, of space, and of time and of their magnificent perception.

—Mario Luzi
