ARTIST STATEMENT The latest painting series made by EZ for 2017 is based on the Aristotelian metaphysics concept of Entelechy – from Ancient Greek entelékheia coined by Aristotle from entelès “complete” tèlos “accomplishment” èkho “to have” – or rather the complete realisation and final form of some potential concept or function; the conditions under which a potential thing becomes actualized. 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.
