                                         -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 objects.
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".

"Painting is the aesthetic side of the object but it has never been original, has never been its own goal." 
                        -Kazimir Malevich

Kazimir Malevich used his abstract style called suprematism to convey that the supreme reality is pure feeling. He used bright colors next to dark colors while creating negative space. With this use of color and shapes, its a must to have in my exhibit.
