"ANTONIO PAPASSO: IN PRAISE OF LIGHTNESS"
The power of the human eye can make out clearly defined forms and figures that people the vastness of the world. In his work, Antonio Papasso points exclusively to signs, imprints and wrinkles. Why? His vision is tactile, only tactile, and shifts our perception from the inferno of reality to the paradise of pure sensibility. For the Greeks the soul indicated the vital breath, ànemos. And Papasso goes straight to the soul, where he lives out his split seconds of ecstatic illumination.
...
The existence of nothingness is the rare neutrino - magically produced by and "in" the human psyche - that Papasso seeks out and bears witness to.

Biography, CV, about Antonio Papasso
www.papasso.net, 6 Feb 2014 [cached]
Antonio Papasso Antonio Papasso was born in Florence on 11 July 1932. His interest in art developed slowly in the tradition of the works of the great painters. He studied closely the works in the museums of the Uffizi and the Pitti, which he visited assiduously.
It was only in 1970 that he began to devote himself to art: restless and dissatisfied, he decided to move to a farmhouse in the Pisan countryside. In this hermitage, sometimes in bitter solitude, he faced the challenge of learning more. He was frequently in the company of Luigi Ferrarino, former cultural attachè at the Embassies in Paris and Madrid for over thirty years. He was often in the library of the Scuola Normale in Pisa, trying to get to grips with philosophical and anthropological problems; he discovered the literary review "Il Verri" and made contact with the '63 group (Sanguineti, Giuliani and others).
He began to experiment with forms and colours with a freedom that came from having made some of Picasso's maxims his own, such as: "I have never seen colours in conflict with each other". He applied this principle to figurative images that he created in engravings and prints, with their strident and contrasting colours: they were small works, some of them lost, which Papasso kept in a drawer because they were rejected by friends and critics, but which he believed in: he realised that those colours that seemed so hostile, subsided with time, transformed into new harmonies. Papasso did not abandon this experience. He returned to it later with the pseudonym of Antigone, applying it to engravings and prints, with which he created landscapes and lake scenes with animals.
...
Papasso spent more and more time with his papiers froissès. Two exhibitions in Hamburg and Budapest were followed by another in 1989 at the Charlton gallery in Rome, again presented by Gillo Dorfles.
...
This work was never published and only some studies of it were printed, one of which was later acquired by the BNF together with the collection of engravings FORMA NATURÆ (ARCHETIPI & C.) and five other works signed Antigone: the pseudonym which Papasso used for his coloured etchings of the joys of country life, whose "transcendental" style mixed the traditional and the surreal.
...
In October 2004, Tommaso Lisa's research in the Italian Department of Florence University on Edoardo Sanguineti's collaboration with some important Italian artists led to the presentation of the documents of his collaboration with Papasso.
...
In January 2006 Papasso was invited to exhibit his works at the Museo di Arte Contemporanea of Rome's "La Sapienza" University, where a one-man show was set up curated by Cinzia Di Bari, accompanied by the monograph "Il tutto e il niente" (All and Nothing).
...
In December 2006 a short film on Papasso by Fernando Pessolano and Emilio Casalini entitled QUESTA CARTA MIA (This paper of mine) was presented at the Palazzo dei Congressi in Rome.
...
Papasso was a guest on the website of the Saatchi Gallery in London in the section Saatchi On-line devoted to senior artists from all over the world. He took part in the first online competition SHOWDOWN organised by the gallery, consisting in twelve rounds lasting one week each (with an average of 3000 people taking part in each round) as both Papasso and Antigone, both of whom were chosen by the public and included several times in the 50 FAVOURITE works published at the end of each round. In the ten rounds Papasso was chosen 9 times and Antigone 7 times.
Recently the TV channel CONTO TV chose a work by Papasso for a special collector's edition of 10,000 top-up cards out of an overall number of 100,000 pieces.

Gillo Dorfles's Critical Text of year 1989 about Papasso
www.papasso.net, 13 Feb 2006 [cached]
That particular subtlery of expression, allied to moderation and restraint, which are such important features of the Tuscan temperament, could not fail to surface in the work of Antonio Papasso.
Papasso was born in Florence, and lived for a long time in the shadow of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and his character, a product of older Tuscan influences, could not help but show through in his works - finely gauged and highly sophisticated, subdued and often cryptic, and always built within the artistic realms of caution anda masterfuld control.
...
Through the repetition - almost compulsive - of certain graphic forms (ovoid shapes, spattering, intermingled rectangles and circles) which make his collages instantly recognisable and distinguish them from the work of anyother artist, Papasso has continued along his difficult, lonyly path.
...
There is perhaps only a faint echo of certain works by Arakawa, of certain concretions created by Tapies, or of certain surfaces taken by Frautrier or Tobey to the point of exasperation, to serve as a touchstone; an entirely inappropriate touchstone, however, because each of these artists is lacking in that absolute composure and rigorous yet graceful precision which are the constants of Papasso's works.
Works which, in other words, are anything but "easy", for the very reason that his creations are devoid of heavy effects, of violent chiaroscuro, or sword-thrusts of colour: they are as far from the most recent Germanic expressionism as they are from the aggressive manifestations of the "trans-avant-garde", and further still from the unsubtle and heavy rhythms of the "primary structures" which are being re-visited today. For this reason, Papasso's works need to be enjoyed with love and care so as to delicately extract their hidden and impalpable essence.
