Reality of Abstraction
Reality of Abstraction is a set of black and white photographs, showing abstract images inspired by Suprematist art movement, started in 1913/1915 by Kazimir Malevich. Analyzing his philosophy of non-objective art, I wanted to achieve this “pure artistic feeling, rather than depiction of objects” (Malevich). In my photographs one can see influences of artists such as Kandinsky, Maholy Nagy, Man Ray, Coburn, Malevich, Mondrian from the modern art era of 1913-1920.
I photographed a set of objects with strong architectural shapes and gave them a new form to seek that truth, of the visual experience. Artist as a philosopher, seeking the truth, where “art invades spaces, where only form exists”..
I changed my subjects from being ‘just’ objects, into abstract forms.
I wanted to show the borderline, where the ‘reality’ ends, and ‘abstract’ begins.
Can Art become universal language?
Can Art change the world?
We can ask the same questions today, as the Suprematists did a century ago.
