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.'

I create small studies like Spatial Concept in preparation for a finished piece or just as visual notes. I often use my small studies to understand the problems involved in rendering subjects and to plan the elements to be used in finished works, such as light, color, form, perspective and composition.

These small studies are exclusively available through my shop and blog. All studies are signed on the reverse.
