Agostino Bonalumi’s 3D canvases

“Sculptu-paintings” – monochrome, extroflexed canvases that jut out from wooden or metal profiles inserted in them – are some of the most representative works by Agostino Bonalumi (1935-2013).

In the late 1950s, the Lombard artist participated in group exhibits with Pietro Manzoni and Enrico Castellani, with whom he also collaborated on editing “Azimuth”, the magazine that led to the formalization of a new artistic theory, centered on the essentiality that would later be the subject of extensive creative research in the 1970s’ Conceptual movement.

Here is a selection of Bonalumi’s works.
