Suprematism

Suprematism arose as the first purely abstract movement of the 20th century. Located in Russia, and chiefly linked to the work of Kazimir Malevich, Suprematism displayed a strictly geometric style of non-figurative art. Malevich completed his first Suprematist work in 1913, and published the Suprematist manifesto in 1915. While Suprematism was indebted to Cubism and Futurism, the abstract world of Malevich’s art demanded that any recognizable representation be eliminated in painting, and thus provide a new vision of pure form. Malevich’s non-objective art was austere in its simplicity, with few colors of muted tone, and simple, angular shapes filling the majority of his canvases. His papers describe an interest in capturing feeling, free from intrusion by the conscious mind. By removing all references to the natural world, Malevich created a new sense of beauty and formed a body of work that became the architecture for abstract work throughout the 20th century. Suprematism was considered avant-garde, eventually made illegal by the Russian authorities, and Malevich and other artists were forced to abandon the style in favor of Socialist Realism by the late 1920s.

Latest Product Reviews

Mixing White--I do not recommend it, as the colors don't blend well. Titanium White is still my favorite for mixing. It's true that the colors don't change with the Mixing White, but I find it impossible to use. Titanium White blends so beautifully. I haven't used the other colors of this brand, but I don't care for the Mixing White.

Item 85485 is made for ink lettering (it is raised off the paper) and is of pretty thin plastic (not suitable for lettering with a hard lead pencil). Don't spend your money on this if you are not sure what you want. On the plus side, it has true 1/8" upper and lower case letters (not a metric substitute)

I use Stickles Glitter Glue, in my art journaling and in a recent Mandala picture. I would like them better if they came in a bigger bottle. I do like the sparkling effect they impart.
