Grey and Green Painting

Antoni Tapies
  • Date: 1957
  • Style: Art Informel
  • Genre: abstract

Tàpies developed a style that involved covering his canvases with a thick, highly textured base and incorporating into it materials such as clay and marble dust. To this, he added incised and scribbled lines, various lacerations and graffiti-like marks. He was fascinated by the contrast of different materials. He later wrote: 'My pictures became the truly experimental fields of battle... destruction led up to aesthetic tranquility.'
