Structure/Eco: an intrusion into">
Umberto Eco on Painting - Dictionary of Arguments
Painting/open artwork/Eco: a painting is a "field" of interpretative possibilities.
Structure/Eco: an intrusion into the structure itself can already be found in Tintoretto.
Futurism/Cubism/Eco: new mobility is made possible by the stability of the original forms, which are confirmed again in negation by deformation and dissolution!
Informal, abstract expressionism: abstract expressionism is not a movement, because the picture is there. It is about the viewer's movement.
Meaning/information/Eco: a picturesque configuration that transmits a certain sum of syntactic relationships rather than semantic references also has a meaning. It is constituted in proportion to the order, the conventionality and thus the redundancy of the structure. It is all the more clear and unambiguous the more I adhere to probability rules and an organizational law that are pre-determined._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
