About the artist (1934)
Cecchini’s work explores colourfields and colour traces. While scrutinising the qualities of his medium Cecchini often created monochromatic fields that concentrate on the nuances of the painting medium. The critic Lothar Romain* explains that Cecchini adopts an analytical approach to painting. This type of analytical painting can be regarded as a reaction to art that relies on imagery found in the media and other forms of popular culture that was particularly popular in the 1960’s and 70’s. Cecchini’s philosophy has taken him back to the basic premise of painting; reflecting on itself, in order to achieve pure manifestations of expression, particularly focusing on colour.
