Empreintes de pinceau N°50 à intervalles de 30 cm: Politoile

About Niele Toroni

Niele Toroni pioneered a practice called “Travail-Peinture” which entails marking a surface with imprints of a no. 50 paintbrush at regular 30 cm intervals. Executed on diverse surfaces such as canvas, cloth, gallery walls, and floors, Toroni’s works are both paintings and painterly interventions into space. Each marking is distinct and yet all the markings are the same, transforming the experience of spaces and creating a field in which formal tensions between uniformity and difference, repetition and spontaneity emerge.

Swiss, b. 1937, Muralto, Switzerland
