About Claudio Parmiggiani

Claudio Parmiggiani produced his first "Delocazioni" in 1970, using powder, smoke, fire, soot, and ash to make imprints on paper and boards, a technique he has continued to mine for recent works on panel that depict veil-like forms of light, shade, and movement. In his collage, sculpture, installation, and photography, Parmiggiani explores ways of creating and manipulating images and objects, showing the influence of Giorgio Morandi, whose studio he frequented in the late 1950s, as well as Marcel Duchamp and Piero Manzoni.
