After the Second World War, many artists wanted to redefine their artistic style.
In this striving period, despite the fact that all techniques were welcome, artists sought to abandon the common tropes and methods of earlier artistic schools.
Its valuation changed both in its conception as an art object as in their notion of representation.

Greater relevance began to be given to the process behind the work, to the creative inspiration that initiated art and also to performative aspects. Kazuo Shiraga painted with his feet, Shozo Shimamoto threw glass bottles filled with paint at his works and Niki de Saint Phalle shot balloons, filled with paint and wrapped in plaster, with a rifle to the canvas. However, it is Jackson Pollock’s drip technique that challenged the importance of the fixation with fate as a creative method.

GALERIA AZUR’s new group show was inspired by that stage of post-war euphoria that originated different processes of creating art from very radical movements and a new generation of sculptors and painters that began to understand themselves simply as artists, considering all kinds of materials and themes as potential art. The varied artistic styles trigger intimate relationships that share a common feeling of impetus exacerbated in fate.
