Guido Molinari

Rhythmic Mutation No. 9

1965
Guido Molinari based his entire painting practice on the premise that emotional responses to certain juxtapositions of colour are fundamental to painting and that painting itself is the only true field of research involved in the dynamic possibilities of colour. "Rhythmic Mutation No. 9" highlights Molinari’s thorough exploration of what he called "colour/space" - the way colours actually perform in what he saw as the fictional space of the canvas. For Molinari, "space is a form in itself, and space is consequently an unlimited mutation."
