Getting to know the unknown

My latest exhibition review for Church Times is of Giorgio Griffa: A Continuous Becoming at Camden Arts Centre:

'Minimalist unfinished marks on parts of unframed canvases hung from tacks on white walls; this is the “poor art” of Giorgio Griffa, which is rich in meaning and beauty ...

His are the colours of the Mediterranean; light, airy, precise, pastel. Marks that give the appearance of doodles are, as his sketchbooks demonstrate, meticulously planned and executed. The rhythms and harmonies of his mark-making in space fashion the dynam­ism of his diagonals, curves, and rectangles.

The marks on his unfolded pinned canvases never extend across the whole — a decision that signs the unfinished nature of our under­standing and comprehension.'

I've also written about Griffa's use of the Golden Ratio in a feature article published by Artlyst.
