Still In Love: Italian Futurism

In 2014, Ed and I saw an Italian Futurism show at the Guggenheim. It was one of the shows that stayed with me for a long time. And know I must share with you, again.

Italian Futurism was interested in both the meaning behind the image, and the idea of movement. Whether unconsciously or by design, the dynamics of the future was suggested with bold images, sweeping images, and the promise of speed or speeding into the future.

I love the lines, the colors and the odd visual thrill they provide.

Even a potentially banal subject - a woman walking her dog, gets a dynamic treatment by these painters.
