Lot description
Ohne Titel. 1966.
Oil, gouache and soot on board.
Signed and dated lower right. 68,4 x 95,7 cm (26,9 x 37,6 in), size of sheet.
Using fire, Piene develops, during the short burning process, the technique of gelling paint on the backing. After the fire is extinguished, the structure that has appeared of its own accord is then fixed; the organic process of nature is confronted with the controlled artistic intervention of various design forms and brought to a synthesis.
