GIORGIO GRIFFA : A CONTINUOUS BECOMING
Jan 26 - Apr 8, 2018
Private view Thu Jan 25 6.30pm - 8.30pm
Giorgio Griffa first became known in the 1960s as part of an Italian generation of artists who proposed a radical redefinition of painting.
 
Griffa’s minimalist approach reduces painting to its essential elements: raw canvas, colour and brushstrokes. Griffa believes in the ‘intelligence of painting’, creating with what he calls ‘passive concentration’. Carefully following material behaviours as they play out on the canvas, he allows the instruments of painting to lead as the work’s protagonists: the type or width of brush, the colour or dilution of paint used, the properties of the canvas, whether linen, cotton, hemp or jute.
