DUE OPERE DI ALBERTO BURRI DA UNA COLLEZIONE PRIVATA ROMANA
L'opera è accomagnata da certificato su fotografia rilasciato dalla Fondazione Palazzo Albizzini, Collezione Burri, Città di Castello
Combustione is a brilliant example from the vast production of Alberto Burri. The choice of disparate materials connotes and distinguishes it, but the use of fire elevates this work. Under the regenerative fire technique, the plastic membrane cracks and causes dark reflections. It is still the fire that deforms and redraws its contours. The material rises from the ashes like a phoenix, has a new and unique shape, Burri’s signature.
This exemplar, signed and dated 1961, inserts itself into the artist’s most prolific combustion period. This work stands out with its dark color which is at points illuminated by grey tones. Its irreproachable preservation makes it a work of extraordinary potential.
