"Around the studio there were hundreds of collages with newspaper clippings, little sketches which he worked on, adding or removing details, moving items into space, finding inspiration from one image and transferring it to another, photocopying each step. The photocopies were in turn retouched with marker or enamel paint, only some details having their colors changed or being overly magnified. These steps, for which there are still entire sequences of photocopies, constitute what happened behind the scenes of many of his famous works."
Monica De Bei Schifano, from: "Mario Schifano. A Biography" by Luca Ronchi , Johan & Levi Publisher, 2012

Called up: December 9, 2017 - ca. 16.12 h +/- 20 min.

In the 1960s the work group of the 'Monochrome' paintings come into existence, in which he discovered common household lacquer paints as his preferred material. Mario Schifaneo attained a very special mode of expression with unconventional painting means. He applies the paint with an expressive gesture, in our work he spreads it across two rectangular collaged newspaper clippings.
