Lot Essay

‘Einstein’s discovery of the cosmos is the infinite dimension without end. And so here we have: foreground, middleground and background … to go further what do I have to do? I make holes, infinity passes through them, light passes through them, there is no need to paint. Everyone thought I wanted to destroy: but it is not true. I have constructed’
(L. Fontana, quoted in C. Lonzi, Autoritratto, Bari 1969, pp. 169-171).
