Monochrome paintings are images without representation. Frank Stella and Ad Reinhardt, for example, developed an extreme process of negation: no content except the object itself; no drawing, no composition, no internal rapport, no depth, no dramatic relationship between figure and background, no plasticity and no decoration. Explore the degree zero of painting, colour and matter, in itself and for itself; and its great physical and conceptual density based on symbols, spiritualism and utopia.
