Burri: Seen/Unseen

Essay by Maurizio Calvesi.

In 1952 Umbrian artist Alberto Burri scandalized art critics and audiences worldwide with burned wood, flame-red paintings, dramatic combustions of plastic, and a black that was the color of tar. Indifferent to the twin temptations of modishness and the market, Burri made a name for himself first in the United States and then in his native Italy. Burri: Seen/Unseen sets out to reveal many of Burri's previously unknown works. As such, it bears wintess to Burr's ability to continually invent new combinations of forms and materials, and documents his love for small-scale formats*which serve as proof that nontraditional materials can be used even in the most minute and precise forms of painting. Burri: Seen/Unseen traces the artist's creative activity from his earliest works to his later years and provides an in-depth examination of his excursions into previously unexplored aesthetic territories.
