DOMENICO BIANCHI

HALL 2.0

STAND F16

(1955, Rome)

This artwork is part of a new series recently started by the artist, sourcing precious hard stones from all around the world. The work is constructed using stone-working techniques: cutting, filing, and polishing. Set together into a main slab, the hardstones produce a composition developing in both formal and chromatic interplay.

Domenico Bianchi has been working with Christian Stein since 1988.

On view: Domenico Bianchi - Retrospective at Galleria Christian Stein, Milan 2019

Domenico Bianchi lives and works in Rome. He is part of the generation of artists following the Arte Povera movement. His sense of abstraction maintains the conceptual foundation of his predecessors while also delving into the relationship between body and soul, material and ephemeral. The attention to multiple materials (such as paper, wax, and hard stones) while revolving around the same abstract shapes is a feature of his work.


His work is held in important collections, including:

MoMA, Museum of Modern Art, New York; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Mumok, Wien; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Getty Museum, Los Angeles; MoCA, Los Angeles; Magazzino Italian Art, Cold Spring/New York; Castello di RIvoli, Turin; MaMBO, Bologna; Museo MADRE, Naples.
