"I Barocchi - Baroques (1954-1957)"
This cycle of works is based on canvases that are covered with "holes" but also have rather lively sections covered with thick oils and other materials (sequins, sand, etc.), often accompanied by fragments of coloured glass, creating a remarkable effect of movement. The "Baroque" trait of this series is already visible in some of the paintings included in the "Le Pietre – Stones" series. The term "Baroques" refers to the dynamic component of Fontana's work which, in this series, at times develops in line with a cosmic element, at times in formal solutions that come close to figurative representation.
