Occidental Deposit (Deposito occidentale) is a painting completed in 1986; a heroic climate reigns in it, as in other of his works, engulfed by a storm and a temperature that only the strongest images can control. The path across the surface of the picture, within the threshold of the painting, indicates the birth of a new life, or at least a new condition. There are no more small sensations or soft and delicate feelings, but rather an environment that forges each element and shifts it to a new climate that is boldly defined and delimited. Occidental Deposit was featured in the monographic exhibition on Enzo Cucchi held at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, that same year. This work was placed in the rotunda along with a sculpture. The theme of the installation revolved around the notion of travel. Occidental Deposit represents, by means of images and the inclusion of a metal wheel, an epic imagery that seeks to make a reference to the new world.
