Kazimir Malevich Art

Kazimir Malevich (1878 - 1935), a Russian painter and art theoretician, pioneer of geometric abstract art and the originator of the Suprematism movement, is considered to be one of the 20th century's most influential artists. Suprematism is a Russian abstract art movement that is characterized by the use of just a small number of colours and a few fundamental geometric shapes, focused on pure form and its spiritual qualities. From the simplest geometric shapes, Malevich built an entire Suprematist universe. Kasimir Malevich's art and his Suprematist manifesto are amongst the most vital artistic developments of the 20th century. He claimed to have reached the summit of abstract art by denying objective representation.

His earliest work was figurative, with tubular human forms and geometric backgrounds that showed the influence of two early 20th-century movements in modern art: Cubism and Futurism. Later Malevich developed his own abstract style based strictly on geometric elements, squares and rectangles. This style became known as Suprematism, referring to supremacy of "pure artistic feeling" over all other considerations. Malevich hoped to create art that was completely devoid of references to objects. In the first Suprematist paintings he presented geometric forms in a limited range of colors, sometimes in black alone, against a white background. Later he introduced a broader range of colors as well as triangles, circles, and curved shapes.

Any attempt to interpret Suprematism inevitably draws upon Malevich's own explanation of the movement. Malevich distinguished his work not only from depictions of external reality, but also from any art that attempted to represent the emotions of its creator.

These are words Malevich often used to explain Suprematism and his art: infinity, eternity, God, zero of form, the void, blissful sense of liberating non-objectivity, pure art, supremacy of pure feeling, spirit of non-objective sensation which pervades everything...

"By Suprematism I mean the supremacy of pure feeling in creative art. To the Suprematist the visual phenomena of the objective world are, in themselves, meaningless - the significant thing is feeling."

Certain artists are chosen by history. Fate decrees that they be the first to discern and then incarnate in their oeuvre what goes on to become the aesthetic symbol of the epoch.

Kazimir Malevich is one such artist.
