LITERATURE: M. Luzi, 15 superfici bianche di Enrico Castellani, Rex Built In, Udine 1994, p. 11.
"To me white is not a color but rather the absence of it. Through the treatment of the surface I try to attain an utmost degree of objectivity in my pictures, and the same accounts for the color. White to me is the one color, or rather non-color, that makes this objectivation best possible."
Enrico Castellani in an interview with L. Vincenti, 1983.
