Negativo / Positivo

create colorful shapes with stencils in Arnaldo Pomodoro's studio

Starting from the current exhibition La negazione della forma. Arnaldo Pomodoro tra minimalismo e controcultura we note that Arnaldo Pomodoro has distinguished the negative and positive forms through the use of colours. We enter his laboratory to create a colorful composition by intersecting geometric shapes. With stencils, tempera and sponges we experiment with a simple but highly effective printing technique to define which shapes are positive and negative and which color to associate them with. How many incredible compositions can be created with shapes and primary colors!
