NAVES, Rodrigo. Where Alfredo Volpi Starts to get complex: the painter's: dialogue with both concretistas and neoconcretista.Translated byDavid Allan Rodgers. Novos estud. - CEBRAP [online]. 2008, vol.4Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0101-3300.
In the opposite direction of the belief according to which Volpi would be an intuitive artist, this article states that the artist found the solutions of his work after a peculiar assimilation of the modern tradition. The article shows how Volpi's experience with discussions raised by concrete and neoconcrete artists helped shape his formal articulations, even though with solutions quite different from those of the artists of both groups.
Keywords : Volpi; modern art; concretism; neoconcretism.
