Enrico Zecchini

b 1983 Catania, Italy. Lives and works in Berlin.


The latest painting series made by EZ is based on the Aristotelian metaphysics concept of Entelechy. This comes from the ancient Greek concept entelékheia coined by Aristotle from entelès “complete” tèlos “accomplishment” èkho “to have” – or rather the complete realization and final form of some potential concept or function; the conditions under which a potential thing becomes actualized.

Entelechy is a particular type of motivation, need for self-determination, and inner strength directing life and growth to become all one is capable of being; the need to actualize one’s beliefs; having both a personal vision and the ability to actualize that vision from within.

The Italian artist Enrico EZ Zecchini represents the first step of a new research project focused on creating input and conditions needed to actualize a potential painting form. Goethe designed the Entelechy as the archetype of plants in the same way the painting lives and develops by itself through a long process of self-determination. A considerable amount of water is the base that slowly leads, organically, the colors to the final shape.
