Gino De Dominicis: Works from the Collection of Guntis Brands

Gino De Dominicis

Gino de Dominicis (1947 – 1998) was an artist of eccentric and mysterious sensibility. Often described as an isolated case in the Italian art context, he turned his back on the logic of groups and movements in favour of a solitary artistic creation. Published on the occasion of the exhibition ‘Gino De Dominicis: Works from the Collection of Guntis Brands’, held in London at Luxembourg + Co., the book is focused on Gino De Dominicis’ work as a painter. With essays by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Flavia Frigeri, and a poem by Daniel Buren, the mysterious figure of Gino De Dominicis begins to emerge, offering an insight in to one of the most enigmatic artists of the twentieth century.

A swiss-bound hardcover opens to reveal a tape-bound soft cover book inside — its playful nature, and the luxurious gold second cover, designed as an ode to the eccentric and mysterious sensibilities of Gino de Dominicis and his body of work.

Black, gold and blue details give the catalogue its design language, echoing the gilded paintings from the collection on display at Luxembourg + Co.
