Gianfranco Scotti x Josef Albers

The rich palette of Gianfranco Scotti's Autumn 2015 collection has us thumbing through the works of color theorist and artist, Josef Albers' Homage to the Square.

Albers explored chromatic interactions using oil paint on masonite board in the same way Scotti uses fine silks and Italian cottons to drape the body. The Homage to the Square series blurs the lines between curatorial combinations of elements and scientific experimentation. On this the artist says, 

"The creative process is the same secret in science as it is in art. They are all the same absolutely."

In the spirit of Albers' creative experiments we offer a paired selection of his works with Gianfranco Scotti's newest arrivals.
