Reference: Kevin Brophy, Waves, Mountains, Wings and Sails: On Lorri Whiting, an Expatriate Woman Artist, Westerly Magazine, Nov 2019 and July 2020, online:

"She found herself in Rome in 1955 at the moment of the Arte Informale movement, under the provocative influence of Lucio Fontana… This movement’s aim… was ‘to make art by any means’... In Italy, and in Rome in particular, there was an acute awareness of Expressionism and Action painting in the United States, encouraging moves towards abstraction and new forms of materiality. This radicalism was also in part, in Italy, a visceral reaction against fascism’s exploitation of progressive art. It was an attempt to discover a language for art uncontaminated by politics and ideology." Brophy, op. cit.

Note:

Lorri Whiting, née Fraser, left Melbourne in 1952 after studies at RMIT and her first (and successful) solo show.  She lived for the rest of her life in Italy.
