the old and worm eaten

“indeed all things move, all things run, all things are rapidly chaning”

the “technical manifesto of futurist painting” seeks to re-examine the gesture of painting as “dynamic sensation” – something unfixed in space and time, something ever changing and un-absolute. in doing so it aims to break the “fanatical worship of all that is old and worm eaten.”

“In order to conceive and understand the novel beauties of a Futurist picture, the soul must be purified; the eye must be freed from its veil of atavism and culture, so that it may at last look upon Nature and not upon the museum as the one and only standard.”

“movement and light destroy the materiality of bodies” – the canvas is dynamic and nothing is static – things shift and move as if they breathe life.
