Suprematist Composition No 1 With A Square
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas - Art Print
Suprematist Composition No 1 With A Square, by Ben Gertsberg, original acrylic painting on canvas, size 14"x14" - from Suprematism Revisited series. One of four pieces.
Inspired by the innovative and compelling idea "to view life through the prism of pure artistic feeling" the series includes four paintings composed of simple geometrical shapes, such as squares, circles, triangles and quadrilaterals, in complex relationships on the plane or in the process of moving into the three-dimensional space.
In this unique interpretation of the style, color gradients and use of multiple layers make simple geometric forms appear submerged into the layers of richly textured background with a limited palette of pastel colors - orange, yellow, mauve, green and blue.
The Suprematism Revisited series is a tribute to the 20th century Russian artist Kazimir Malevich who created Suprematism - the first art movement of pure geometrical abstraction in painting. By moving away from Cubism and Futurism Malevich arrived to "the new realism in painting." According to the artist, "our life is a theater piece, in which nonobjective feeling is portrayed by objective imagery" and the new style of painting brings into being "...an altogether new and direct form of representation of the world of feeling."
