More information

After a period of making paintings somewhat inspired by Surrealism, in 1953 Antoni Tàpies banished the figure entirely from his work. He began to use paint for its material qualities, applying it in thick layers, sometimes mixed with sand and cement. The results are large, almost monochrome expanses of black, grey and shades of ochre, which evoke the beauty of old weathered walls concealing mysterious worlds.
