Catalogue Note

"I no longer saw the canvas as a place of representation, but as more of a means unto itself for creating the work: there was an interest in materials rather than in a particular subject matter.” Agostino Bonalumi quoted in: Exhibition Catalogue, London, Robilant + Voena, Bonalumi. All the Shapes of Space 1958 – 1976, 2013, p. 189.
