“The initial rush of activity that Jansen invests at the beginning of a piece is retained in the painting’s tangible sense of motion which, along with his use of graffiti-like colors, helps create his signature style” – Lifescapes Magazine, Los Angeles, California

INTERVIEW: MELANIE MOLLO

Interviews | September 24, 2020

Feelings flow freely into the soul, without control, as the colors on the canvas become one with it. That it is happiness, sadness, love, passion, anger, they dominate us and dominate our actions. Like the flow of a river into the sea, they get lost in the immensity of our being, regenerating itself in the latter, and then share their new life as a drop and source of feeling. This underlines the cyclical nature without a beginning or an end. Feelings are part of us forging our character. Read more

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.
