The Incise Paintings introduce lighting into the context of a canvas to create a provocative objet d’art.
This unique installation is inspired by Lucio Fontana’s technique of deliberately cutting into his canvases to reveal unseen spaces. Drawing on Fontana’s impactful works, the Incise Paintings inset pearlescent lights within apertures in apainted canvas, illuminating the textured layers of the surrounding surface to create an expansive field of light. As a finishing touch, the canvas is floated within a solid oak wood frame.
The Incise Paintings bring an imaginative approach to lighting, offering a new perspective on its expressive possibilities.
