Green Lantern vs. Wolverine

The Daily Pic: Lucio Fontana goes out on a limb

I don’t expect artists to get everything right. In fact, when they do, it makes me doubt their courage. Here’s a weirdly incoherent, ornamental Lucio Fontana from the Gagosian survey of his work that I’ve been Daily Pic-ing all week. I suppose it gets  more or less everything wrong (although it could work as a costume study for the Green Lantern’s smack down with Wolverine.) But its wrongness gives me a weird thrill, given the company it keeps with so many successful experiments.
