    Palermo

    German • 1943 - 1977

    Blinky Palermo is best known for his monochromatic canvases and fabric paintings made from simple lengths of material cut, stitched and stretched over a frame. Palermo painted on aluminium, steel, wood, paper and Formica, often making lines out of tape instead of paint. He completed approximately 65 paintings between 1966 and 1972 titled Stoffbilder (Fabric Paintings); in this signature series, he took ready-made department-store fabrics and stitched them into vibrant panels.

    Palermo studied under Joseph Beuys alongside Sigmar Polke and Gerhard Richter. Public collections holding major works by Palermo include the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington D.C. and the Dia Art Foundation. Most of the artist's work, however, remains in the possession of private collectors and museums in Europe.
