The animal subjects of the “La Serie della Natura” derive from the iconographic research that Mari developed at the beginning of the ‘60s for the definition of the characters of the “Gioco delle Favole”. A lengthy study was dedicated to each subject to achieve an emblematic result that makes an alphabet of institutionalised signs decipherable. The re-edition of the prints of Enzo Mari’s iconic subjects therefore continues with three subjects taken from this project and already created as independent prints.
Serie della Natura: La Volpe
Enzo Mari, 1965, re-edition 2021
La Serie della Natura comes from research to transform an image into a symbol through a planned reduction which tends to eliminate the superfluous in favor of meaning, in the optical of the realization of art multiples. From 1961 to 1976 Mari designs products with 17 symbols of silkscreens texiline. Mari starts to work on the subjects that make up this series since 1957: in the same year he sees the first version of the Gioco Delle Favole, that Danese would put into production in 1965. It becomes one of Danese production 's symbols, this series is one of those few examples that reach the object of creating, for home environment, an artistic idea built on a concept of seriality. It does not exhist an original object, for this kind of work, this is because we obtain the final image after long technical processing on series. Mari looks for shape and technics of representation, a sort of "super icona": La Volpe is not a fox, but The Fox
