Lot Essay

‘I think the throwing of bottles as a method of painting is a form of study of the unknown…  More than anything else, I find stimulation in the materialization of an unpredictable expression’

(B. Oliva, quoted in Shimamoto Shozo, Samurai, acrobata dello sguardo 1950-2008, exh. cat., Museo d'Arte Contemporanea di Villa Croce, Milan, 2008, P.26)
