About Paolo Scheggi

Paolo Scheggi was a pioneer in the practice of approaching paintings as objects, creating layered monochromatic works that emphasized the picture plane’s physicality over its representational potential. At a young age, his sheet metal assemblages and collages attracted the attention of art critic Germano Celant and artist Lucio Fontana. He later received international acclaim for his “Intersuperfici” and “Strutture Modulari” works, which feature solidly colored canvases or sheets of cardboard dotted with small elliptical apertures. Placed atop one another, each layer exposes the one beneath it. Scheggi’s work has been included in multiple Venice Biennales, both during and immediately after his short life. He was briefly associated with the Nul and Zero groups and the New Tendencies movement, all of which reacted against the dominant postwar expressionist movements.
