"In my work, I try to emphasize, among other things, the specific content and experimental possibilities of matter within the structure of an image."


Agostino Bonalumi is a major figure of Italian spatialism. He uses geometry in his art in an effort to promote lyrical artistic expressionism devoid of emotion. His works are anchored in the artistic thought expounded by Manzoni, Castellani, and Fontana; they are characterized by how the artist develops and perceives the play of shadow and light. Bonalumi thus succeeds in breaking the rigid structure of the canvas thanks to mobile systems of lines which transgress lateral limitations. Through various techniques which emphasize the role of light in shaping the work, Agostino Bonalumi develops poetic and free art around imaginary spaces.
