Lucio Fontana: Ceramics at Galerie Karsten Greve 💫 Lucio Fontana, known internationally for his colourful slashed canvases, or Tagli, actually devoted most of his time and art to ceramics, deeply reinventing the medium and entertaining correlations between avant garde and biomorphic, abstract and figurative, profane and religious. In 1930 Fontana distanced himself from classical sculpture and marble carving and turned to modelling to shape more expressive artworks.  The malleability of ceramic embodied the principles he embraced in creating a new art that “drew its components from nature”: “Existence, nature and matter form a perfect unity. They develop in time and space. Change is an essential feature of existence. Movement and the capacity to evolve and develop are the fundamental properties of matter. It exists in movement and in no other way.” Pictured: 1. Crocifisso, Lucio Fontana, 1950-1955; 2. Madonna con Bambino, Lucio Fontana, 1950-1953; 3.Figure distese, Lucio Fontana, 1939; 4.
