From 1970, Claude Viallat is looking for a renewal of art and this begins with a questioning of traditional materials.
For this work, which dates from 1975, the artist uses an industrial tarpaulin as a support, which gives fluidity to its creation. He desacralizes "the canvas" by freeing it from its frame. He paints patterns in the shapes of knucklebones, with a stencil. They are repeated endlessly, the colors keep coming in different combinations. The light pierces the fabric, and accentuates the richness of the colors used.
