Spatialism

Spatialism was founded by Lucio Fontana in Italy in 1947. Described in his White Manifesto, Spatialism sought to define a kind of art that would be suitable for the modern age. In the manifesto he recommended a combination of artistic and scientific innovations and discredited the traditional illusory space of painting. Neon lights and television were some of the materials he suggested using to achieve a projection of light and color into the “real” space of the world. Some of Fontana's best-known works are his slashed canvases, in which the artist deliberately and literally broke through the picture plane. Fontana was able to discredit the traditional painting surface by mutilating it, forcing the viewer to engage with the painting in an unfamiliar way. By communicating with the audience in new ways, and breaking down some conventions of paint on canvas, Fontana created a movement that can be seen as a precursor Environment Art. Fontana's gestural and theatrical work was setting the criteria for a new concept of space that would be utilized by architects and sculptors. Using abstract means he defined the leap from the canvas to the realm of real life.

This is a really great product
- sdfsfsfd sdfsfs in sdfsdf sdfsd sdfdsfdsf
I agree with the other 5-star reviews. Compact and sturdy. I use a waterbrush, not the included brush.
- Russell in Tupelo, MS
I've had these brushes for awhile and can say they are the best brushes I have ever owned. I have been painting for a long time and have had brushes considered top of the line. I've tried a lot of them, and most have been a so-so feeling. Nothing really stood out. When I got these, the first thing I noticed was the balance. There is a feeling of great balance on these. The brush stands up to a lot, and is a real workhorse. They are go to brushes for straight lines and precision. The Dakotas are brushes that just don't disappoint.
