One of the most radical and articulate artists of the neo-avant-garde working in Italy today, Giorgio Griffa (Turin, 1936) came to prominence in the late 1960s for his intense and highly concentrated paintings which are reduced to their essential components: canvas, colours and brushstrokes. This comprehensive monograph aims —through a series of essays by Andrea Bellini, Luca Cerizza, Laura Cherubini, Martin Clark, Suzanne Cotter, and Chris Dercon, a conversation between Griffa and Hans Ulrich Obrist, and a selection of artist's writings and a chronology compiled by Marianna Vecellio — to highlight the very diverse features and extraordinary richness of Griffa's paintings.
