“I wanted not only that the painter moves, but also the painting“. – Alfons Schillings.
In the 1960’s, the Swiss born, Vienna based painter Schilling, influenced by American “action painting”, became one of the first artists interested in ‘Rotationsbilder’ (spin-paintings); paintings produced on large vertical discs, turning at speeds up to 3 times a second. This technique has been used since by many artists including Damien Hirst.
