The work of Argentine born artist Lucio Fontana first came to my attention when I flipped through the new book on Belgian antiquarian extraordinaire, Axel Vervoordt (see first image). His most notable work features painted canvas with a series of blade cuts, which, as you can see, gives an interesting extra dimension to them. He has pieces in the permanent collections of the Moma New York, and the Guggenheim. And if I’m lucky, mine also one day….
