Slash painting. Concetto spaziale, Atessa. 1964.
Fontana seeks in this work, with a clean and simple gesture, to point out a fourth dimension.
It is precisely for this reason that we have chosen this work. The work shows a new dimension in the painting by slashing the canvas. In this simple cut, a space arises behind the surface, and an unprecedented encounter takes place between painting and sculpture.
The work serves as an inspiration for us by showing how to innovate with simple tools, finding new opportunities even in the most modest places.
