CLAUDE VIALLAT, acrylic on canvas – 1973
The artist chooses for the painting surface to be the dominating element. The pinned-up surface of the painting is not supported by a skelly, as is traditionally the case. This untitled piece consists of a restless, thin crumpled linen cloth. The rhythm of subsequent patterns represents the experiment. In a repetitive and simple manner, Viallat’s offers a functional infinity through one single exuberantly colourful logo.
