Todays blog on Christian Megert, because next Saturday afternoon an important Christian Megert exhibition will be opened at de Rijk/ Chabot fine art. Suisse born and one of the earliest ZERO artists, he researched space and composition mainly by using mirrors and reflecting materials .

Because of the reflections created this way his art is also very close to the Kinetic art which was made in those days. Megert stayed true to his discoveries in creating his compositions with reflecting materials (mainly mirrors) and is increasingly becoming more appreciated and collected by important collectors all over the world.

Michelangelo Pistoletto (1933)

I know his work and recognize it by his reflecting surfaces and mirror like qualities , but Pistoletto is much more than an artist who uses a “Gimmick”. Now , 85 years of age he has proven to be one of the most influential Italian artists from the last century and his works have spread all over the world . (I even have illy collection cups by Pistoletto in my collection ;-).

Why is he, i think, so important?…. Probably this is because he stayed true to his art and has developed it into a very personal and recognizable form which is now appreciated by many. Pistoletto had had his exhibitions in the Netherlands in the van Abbemuseum and Stedelijk Museum and has built steadily an appreciative audience because of these exhibitions in the Netherlands since his earliest one at the van Abbemuseum in 1986. Arte Povera is Pistoletto ….and within his works he brings together Fluxus and conceptual art. The admiration of Bacon started his art career, but since he has walked his own path of “REFLECTION”.

Here are some of the books www.ftn-books.com has on Pistoletto in collection
