Thin Long Turnover—Model 26—Yellow
Acrylic on plywood
<P><SPAN lang=EN>From the exhibition <EM>Many Things Placed Here and There: The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection at the Yale University Art Gallery</EM></SPAN>:</P>
<P>This painting is part of a series that Lucio Pozzi called <EM>Turnovers</EM>, in which pieces of plywood were painted and stacked. In these works, the artist sought to manipulate his materials through the uncomplicated gesture of turning, creating paintings that challenge the traditional square canvas. Herbert Vogel often visited Pozzi's Mulberry Street studio, and the artist would sometimes join the Vogels for dinner. Herbert's taste was revelatory for Pozzi, who said, "I am stunned by how [Herbert's] eye and mind saw beyond my perception of my own work."</P>
