Traces of return to the future. Painting has become an element inside a container called art today, where we find everything inside. This has led to a departure from what we consider painting as such. Hence the idea of a return to the concepts of the artistic avant-gardes of the ‘900 and the motivations that revolutionized painting towards the future, which, starting from Kandinsky, in a continuous and constant evolution lead us to Pollock; thanks to the energy of Pollock and the irascible of the New York School, who were able to reinterpret the canvas not only as a space to express their thoughts, but as a space for their individual freedom as a man-artist. The personalities of Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko and Robert Motherwell have taught us new languages to express new concepts. We think that painting, today, still has much to offer in the search for new and personal languages, aimed at that idea of painting known above all with the name of abstractionism.
