Joseph Pace (born 18 November 1959) is an Italian painter, sculptor and philosopher.

Life and work[edit]

Joseph Pace was born in Morbegno (Lombardy) and raised in Congo-Kinshasa (Africa),[1][2] where his father Aurelio Pace,[3] an historian of Africa, was working for UNESCO with the literate Jacques Garelli. Grandson of the Protestant pastor Camillo Pace,[4][5] Pace was first introduced to painting and sculpture by his mother Franchina Cardile[6] and by his uncle Antonio Cardile,[7] an artist of the Roman School of Painting. He has also followed legal, literary, social and psychoanalitical studies at the University of Paris La Sorbonne,[8] at the Sapienza University of Rome[9] and at the Roma Tre University.[10]

In the 1980s Pace worked in Rome and Paris where, in the mid-1980s, he founded "Le Filtranisme"[11] an neo-existencialist philosophical and artistic current[12][13] witch has an optic close to Renaissance and a clear anthropocosmic vision.[14] As was for the existentialism of Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus, the filtranisme also expressed more through the works of Pace than through a veritable theoretical apparatus.

Inspired by sources as diverse as history, philosophy, electronic music and decorative arts,[15] Pace uses different techniques (such as painting, assemblage, sculpture, electronic engravings, photography)[16][17] influenced by the iconography of mass society, philosophy and psychoanalysis.[18][19]

Also assembling objects such as antique costume jewellery ("MIDAS" series)[20][21] or recycled materials such as wood, metals or frosted glass of refrigerators shelves,[22] the artist mainly uses monochrome colors and polichromes that become arabesque paintings. “Over these surfaces, in a mixture of bright colors that evoke the smell of fresh varnish, Pace lays strokes of pure color” [23][24] that characterize many of his works.

The erudite work of Joseph Pace gives an artistic and intellectual pathway[25] with which the artist reinterprets many of our psychic realities.[26][27]

In July 1987, Pace wrote the first manifesto Filtraniste. The same year he befriended the multimedia artist Sergio Valle Duarte[28] and, thanks to their common African experience, the writer Albert Russo.[29][30] In February 1988, he organized at the Hulot Galerie in Paris "Paysages Filtranistes ", an exhibition of painting and poetry summarizing the status quo of the abstracts dogmatisms. During the summer of 1990 meaningful is the encounter between the sociologist and family friend Kurt Heinrich Wolff [31][32] about the epistemological “surrender-and-catch” concepts[33] that changed the Pace artistic work from figurative painting to the abstract expressionism becoming, a few years later, the highest exponent of the "informalismo fistranista".[34][35][36][37] A few months before, in January 1990, at his home in Rome he signed the declaration of the enlarged filtranistes group.[38] From 1996 to 2008, he has been appointed assistant professor[39][40] of Sociology of knowledge and Art and History of sociology at the Sapienza University of Rome.[41]

After the figurative period (1977–1990), the abstract period (1990-) is first characterized by the "Periodo dei Legni" (Woods’s period 1990-1996) and the "Factor C" studies (1997) and subsequently by the still in progress series, "IDM" (Unshakableness of the Memory, 2000-),[42][43] and "ATONS"[44][45] (dedicated to the techno and electronic music, 2005-). With a partial return to figurative, Pace is also working on "ENGRAVING" (printmakings elaborate with computer)[46][47] and "MIDAS", the large sculptures/assemblages of antique jewellery.[48]
