Lucio Fontana, Spatial Concept ‘Waiting’, 1960, canvas, 93 x 73 cm, Tate Modern, London. Source
This is an example of one of Fontana’s Tagli, or ‘cuts’. According to the Tate, these ruptured canvases help to bridge the gap between two- and three-dimensionality. Some of the Tagli feature a painted surface, but this particular one has been left raw and bare.
Kate Bush - Before the Dawn was fantastisk! Clearly, she’s spent the past 30 years storing all of her energy. What a lass. (at Eventim Apollo)
Waiting for Kate Bush. Respecting the no-performance-photos rule. I think it’s a good idea. (at Eventim Apollo)

↳ Vilhelm Hammershøi (1864–1916)
Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, Hammershøi is known for his poetic, low-key interiors. Many of these feature his wife, Ida Ilsted, often seen from behind, and many were painted in their homes in Copenhagen.
Throughout his career, Hammershøi remained independent of any group or movement: a fact which contributed to his work being largely forgotten until relatively recently. While their limited colour-palettes give Hammershøi’s works an air of calm elegance, they can also evoke a sense of mystery and even tension, and, despite their understated aesthetic, they were enough to unsettle the artistic establishment of Hammershøi’s day.
