Kazimir Malevich

Kazimir Severinovich Malevich, a pioneering figure in modern art, emerged as a leading force in the early 20th century. Born in Ukraine in 1879, Malevich challenged traditional artistic conventions with his revolutionary movement, Suprematism. His iconic work, “Suprematist Composition: White on White,” epitomizes his radical departure from representational art, showcasing a white square on a white background as a symbol of pure abstraction.

Malevich’s philosophy emphasized the supremacy of pure feeling in art, advocating for the liberation of artistic expression from the constraints of reality. Through his exploration of geometric abstraction and basic forms, such as squares and circles, Malevich sought to unlock the expressive potential of shape and color.

His influence extended far beyond his own paintings, inspiring artists across Europe and the United States to embrace abstract art and explore new avenues of creative expression. Today, Malevich remains a seminal figure in the history of art, his legacy enduring as a testament to the transformative power of artistic innovation and creative freedom.

Kazimir Malevich – Suprematism of the Spirit (1919 – 1920)

“Suprematism of the Spirit” (1919 / 1920) is one of Kazimir Malevich’s significant works within the Suprematist movement. To understand how he arrived at this painting, it’s crucial to trace the evolution of his artistic ideas and style within Suprematism.

Malevich’s journey in Suprematism was marked by a progression towards increasingly abstract and geometric forms, as well as a deeper exploration of the spiritual dimensions of art. “Suprematism of the Spirit” reflects this culmination of his artistic vision.

This post-Suprematism Malevich was also interested in folk art and Russian traditions. Think vibrantly colored scenes and peasant motifs. It all played a role in his artistic journey, even if it wasn’t the geometric abstraction he’d become famous for.
