The works of art in the exhibition were all produced on printers’ sheets on which the invitation to the preceding Tucci Russo exhibition had been printed. On each sheet, approximate size 50 x 70 cm, the word GAS had been repeatedly printed, vertically. On these sheets, using rubber rollers, I had painted vertical bands in oil following the advancement of the word, covering it with colour, sometimes in a homogeneous manner, sometimes transparently and at other times leaving it visible. The sheets were then laid side by side to form pictures that could take on the great dimensions of a fresco or the form of architectonic decorations (like the enamelled paint-work on the lower parts of walls to protect them from wear) or smaller dimensions, as if they were abstract paintings. I was interested in giving solid form to the colour of the preceding exhibition, in completing the process of crystallisation and precipitation, in an almost chemical sense, that had begun with such luminosity. Giving body to a phantom, grabbing it by the throat.
