Claude Jones, Australia – “Cultural Pursuit”, 2011. 120×188.5cm, mixed media

From October-December 2012, the artist will undertake a sculpture residency at The Fundacion Gruber Jez in Merida, Mexico, where she will work with Mastor sculptor, Mariacarmen Castaner to learn techniques in producing moulds for complex sculptural forms and to cast objects using a variety of resins and metals. Merida, the capital of Yucatan, is rich with Mayan influence and artefacts. Jones is  particularly interested in the pictorial and hieroglyphic imagery of Mayan ceramic painting, the flat and stylized depiction of narrative scenes and the use of repetitive motif to imply context. “To date, I have applied patterned fabrics, decorative papers and collaged prints to the surface of my sculptures. The direct application of painted and richly detailed narrative imagery will add layers of complexity and meaning to my work”.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.
