The photographic series of 5 pieces titled “Red Crosses”, represent the signs that indicate a walk in Liguria’s countryside. The fact that struck Barbara Fässler was the form of the signs: namely two red crosses, painted one beside the other on different rocks along the way. “Red Cross” is a famous work by one of the most radical abstractionists and minimalists in the history of western painting: Kasimir Malevič. The unintentional and perhaps naive gesture of the Ligurian marker of the public walk is striking by its similitude to Malevich’s radical gesture to reduce painting on a monochrome field of applied color on a surface. In order to bring the work closer to the issue of painting, the photographs have been printed on canvas and mounted on wooden frames as paintings.
