LUCIO FONTANA E OSVALDO BORSANI DA UNA RESIDENZA MILANESE
“Even before Picasso became fashionable, Lucio Fontana was inspired by his sculptures to make ceramics: in this particular example, though, it is the painted image that has value since it is the evocation of environmental spaces. It is not simply the joy of pure colour which finds its roots in the paintings of the Fauvists […] but in the environmental spaces which hark back to a Baroque aesthetic in the best possible way […] Fontana’s ceramics decorate walls, they arrange themselves throughout domestic spaces: they are not merely decorative objects that can be repositioned according to one’s whim, they hold their own in the environment. They are real ‘decorations’ and as such they are more easily classed as pure art.”
