Spatial Concept- Painting Of Woman Enjoying Painting By Lucio Fontana

Spatial Concept
painting of woman enjoying a painting by Lucio Fontana

G. Boersma
acrylic on masonite
8" x 8" or 20 x 20 cm


Lucio Fontana is known for his slashing of his paintings. Doing so allowed Fontana to let three–dimensional space intrude into an otherwise two–dimensional surface.

Fontana first introduced perforations within his works in 1949 and referred to these as 'spatial concepts.' He then began slashing his canvases in the early 1950s. While these works immediately conjure acts of violence and iconoclasm, Fontana claimed 'I have constructed, not destroyed.'
