An intervention above the doorway. Like the painted roof to an imaginary house. Again, it could have extended further, or been a character. There were 50 different scenarios for this intervention. Sometimes the space dictates it’s own constraints, sometimes the artist is too short to reach higher or tired.

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.
