Holes or Slashes

art & illustration

The Argentinean sculptor and painter, Lucio Fontana quite literally cuts through modern art, with these iconic paintings.

The slashes through the monochromatic paintings, which he describes as an art for the Space Age, with which its concepts are very much ahead of his time, still lingers in my mind today.

You can catch some of Fontana's famous series "Buchi o Tagli" (holes or slashes) this month from the 27th of September at the Robilant+Voena in London.
