"Suprematist Composition" by Kazimir Malevich 1915
Kazimir Malevich pushed beyond Cubism, Picasso and Mattise in his fierce determination to liberate painting from representation into a new abstract realm. If his radical 'resetting of art' painting "Black Square" (created in the same year) is abstraction's Big Bang we can view Suprematist Composition with its thrilling sense of forward creative motion as the universe forming.
Inside Lift Off is a link to its Exploration Page where you can find out more and sign up to its creative world.
"The Union" by William Ellery Channing 1829
William Channing’s words are an electric accompaniment to Malevich’s artwork. Written in 1829 they now read as a prophetic manifesto for the intellectual, social and cultural developments of the 20th century. Or, simply, as a call to strike with courage and hope for a brighter future.
