Fabio Mauri became one of the best-known post-war Italian artists for his exploration of many mediums, particularly his film and performance works. Mauri began his career making gestural paintings and drawings, but these fell to the wayside as Mauri’s interest in moving images grew. He became most fascinated with film, drawing from both personal and documentary materials. The projected image onto a surface became a central motif and a device for bridging several moments in time. Beginning in the 1950s, Mauri created a series for which he is now best known, comprised of “Schermi” (or “Screens”). As he described, “even before starting a movie, the screen was for me a sort of absorbent paper. It would give us a reality that had already been judged.”
