The Antoni Tàpies Foundation, which is coming up on the 30th anniversary of when it first opened to the public, presents a block of work by Antoni Tàpies done in 1991. The artist produced a series of works in Barcelona on synthetic textile mats that he used to cover and protect his studio floor while he painted. It was not the first time that Tàpies used this medium. In 1984, he had already experimented with the material, producing two works. However, it wasn't until 1991 that he created a significant set of works in which the use of this material was a common feature. Manuel J. Borja-Villel, the director of the Foundation's museum in 1991, selected some of these to exhibit under the title 'Profound certainty'. Twenty-eight years later, the Foundation is showing this block of work in its entirety, including pieces that have not been exhibited before, and accompanying it with a series of bronze and chamotte clay sculptures from the same period.
