By punctuating the space with marks applied at regular intervals using the same 50 mm brush, Niele Toroni heightens its existence by giving it a new light and density.
In Empreintes de pinceau nº 50 à intervalles réguliers de 30 cm (1997), the painter applied a different color—red, yellow, blue, black— to each of four respective canvases. Gesture is essential, even though he doesn’t sign his work. Niele Toroni has never delegated creative work to an assistant.
