R. Różanowski


No «image of reality» — no imaginary things — nothing but desert. This emptiness is enliven by the spirit pervading all no-object experience. This way, questioning the objectivity in painting, Kazimir Malevich wrote in 1922 his suprematist manifesto. He ignored almost all traditional artistic media and he preached the supremacy of pure feeling and creativity which would start completely from scratch. He made painting autonomous, freed colour from shape in order to finally abandon also the logic of colour — only in the pure devoid of the idea, which in his opinion, dominates the practice. Malevich’s radical approach is connected with the fact that neither forms nor colour as such contributed to the clarity of his paintings. What is important in his approach arises between colour and form as result of gravitation towards each other: the relative proportions, relationships, interactions, the new formula of «abstraction» and «abstracting».
