Lucio Fontana

Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

Recognised as the founder of Spatialism, Lucio Fontana was a prolific artist who was driven by a desire to highlight and explore the relationship between surface and dimensionality.
 
« Matter, color, and sound are the phenomena whose simultaneous development is an integral part of the new art. »
Lucio Fontana
Fontana’s techniques included slicing through canvas and punching holes in the surface of his work – Spatial Concept is a series of works that exemplify this particular technique and Fontana would often line the reverse of his canvas with black gauze;
 
« I do not want to make a painting; I want to open up space, create a new dimension, tie in the cosmos, as it endlessly expands beyond the confining plane of the picture. »

What is Spatialism?

What is Spatialism?

Art movement that originated from Italy in the year 1947 when Lucio Fontana founded it with an intention to synthesize sound, color, movement and space into an entirely new type of art. The main ideas of the movement came from his manifesto that was published in 1496 where he spoke of "spatial art" to keep the spirit of the post war age. The ideas were further boosted by the five manifestos that followed the first one. Though his ideas were vague, his outlook was strongly influential probably because he was the first artist from Europe to promote art as a performance and gesture.
