This will be an Art Exhibition. All about how simple yet beautiful art can be.
I will be focusing on abstract pieces, that focus on simple shapes and colors.
Some art I will be reviewing and sharing with you will be from some AMAZING artists. Such as: Edward Weston, Barnett Newman, Jean Hans and many more! I hope you enjoy this glimpse of art history...

Suprematism with Blue Triangle and Black Square,1915 ,oil on canvas, 26.2" × 22.4" -Kazimir (Kasimir) Malevich
Kazimir Malevich (February 23 1879 – May 15 1935) was a Russian painter
and art theoretician. He was a pioneer of geometric abstract art and the originator of the avant-garde Suprematism movement.In 1915, Malevich laid down
the foundations of Suprematism. He published
his manifesto From Cubism to Suprematism. Malevich became a member of
the Collegium on the Arts of Narkompros, the commission for the
protection of monuments and the museums commission (all from 1918–1919).
"Hence, to the Suprematist, the appropriate means of
representation is always the one which gives fullest possible expression
to feeling as such and which ignores the familiar appearance of
Objectivity, in itself, is meaningless to him; the
concepts of the conscious mind are worthless. Feeling is the
determining factor ... and thus art arrives at non objective
representation at Suprematism...Everything which determined the
objective ideal structure of life and of "art' ideas, concepts, and
images all this the artist has cast aside in order to heed pure
feeling... Suprematism is the rediscovery of pure art which, in the
course of time, had become obscured by the accumulation of "things."
This piece shows that such a big statement can be made from minimal shapes and colors.
