Cut/Ripped

About

“My discovery was the hole and that’s it. I am happy to go to the grave after such a discovery.”—Lucio Fontana

Cut and/or ripped artworks, or artworks whose manufacture involves cutting or ripping materials. Lucio Fontana is most often associated with cutting, particularly in relation to his “Spatial Concept” series (1958-1968). Fontana sliced into these canvases with a sharp blade via a single gesture, revealing a black gauze backing behind that resembles a void.
