Catalogue Note

"...a change in essence and form is necessary. It is necessary to go beyond painting, sculpture and poetry. An art based on the requirements of this new vision is needed. Baroque led in this direction, it represented a magnificence that has still not been surpassed where the notion of time was combined with the plastic figures seemed to abandon the plane and continue in space their represented movements." The artist cited in: Exhibition Catalogue, Turin, Castello di Rivoli, Lucio Fontana, 1986, p. 88
