PERCEPTIVE SENSITIVITIES IN THE WORKS OF GRAZIA VARISCO

Grazia Varisco’s works are fundamental to the development of kinetic and programmed art.
Since her early days, when the artist joined Gruppo T in Milan in the early 1960s, she has been interested in the themes of perception and experimentation.

“In my experience ‘chance’ creeps, like a confused tangle, between probability and doubt. Chance’ avoids, attempts to dodge ‘chaos’ and settle in space and time, ignoring the rule that demands precision, regularity, orthogonality, order, chronological sequence. My ‘If…’, doubtful, lurks in the fold of the page that by ‘chance’ disrupts the rule that in typography and bookbinding cages everything in normality”.

With these words, Grazia Varisco presents the contents of her research. In this post we discover her works.

THE MAX ERNST EXHIBITION IN MILAN

The breadth of themes and experimentation in Max Ernst’s work spans seventy years of 20th century history, between Europe and the United States, eluding any definition.
The Max Ernst exhibition in Milan is the first major Italian retrospective dedicated to an artist who was a visionary interpreter of art history, philosophy, science and alchemy.

Max Ernst was to all intents and purposes a humanist in the neo-Renaissance sense, and in this exhibition his works allow us to delve into every aspect of his life and work.

MAURITSHUIS: SMALL JEWEL OF DUTCH ART

If you are in the Netherlands and have the chance to pass through Den Haag (The Hague), you cannot miss the artistic gem this city has in store for you.
The Mauritshuis Museum is a small art gallery that houses the major works of the Dutch Golden Age of the 17th century.

From Rembrandt’s works to Vermeer’s famous still lifes, for which the Dutch were so admired, in this treasure trove of beauty you will find paintings to suit all tastes in an equally impressive location.
The Mauritshuis in fact owes its name to Johan Maurits, the first occupant of the residence and Count of Nassau-Siegen, who had the building constructed between 1633 and 1644.
You will thus find yourself strolling through the rooms of the museum admiring not only the wonderful paintings, but also the palace itself.

Chiara Bressan visited the Mauritshuis for The ART post Blog this fascinating museum and here she proposes some of the must-see works.
