Post lot text
Replete with an all-together painterly, modern spirit, the a Macchie (stains or spots) series speaks to Fulvio Bianconi’s keen awareness of the radical developments taking shape in the contemporary art world. These vessels demonstrate an uninhibited treatment of glass and are imbued with the imagination and exuberance of paintings by artists such as Joan Miró and Paul Klee. The globules of dark colored glass that are worked into the wall of this particular vase achieve a marvelous sense of spontaneity, as well as an extraordinary interplay between front and back, and translucency and opacity.
