SUPREMATISM and NEOPLASTICISM, Malevič and Mondrian | Art in the Blink of an Eye (5)


hi everyone i’m virginia welcome back on culture my channel where we talk about art marketing and so much more as every week and as every Thursday we’re back with art in the blink of an eye in the last video that I put up here we talked about footer ISM and finally about abstract art so today we’re going to figure out from where we left off last time that is with Kandinsky and today we’re going to talk more about some other Russian art movements that were born in the first half of the 20th century roughly around the same year second it was practicing another abstract Russian art movement was born that however didn’t follow music as can discus was let’s see this new art is abundant ever pre-existing concept of illusion meaning that from their point of view art didn’t necessarily have to represent something they started to create art that focused on the theoretical and material properties of an artwork they started rejecting the idea that artworks had to represent something and they did that by pushing the visitors to focus on the formal let’s say features of paintings such as the weight of the paint the colors the texture of the paint itself and this of course caused every shaping of the expectations of the visitors because when they went to an exhibition they of course expected to see paintings with something let’s say represented but not in this case and one of the main artists that started using this concept was the rush of money of each of those times many Russians used to emigrate to Europe because of all the revolutions and war that were happening in Russia at the time in Europe they started of course absorbing the main features of the art movements that were growing there which are mainly cubism and futurism and for this reason at the start they started calling themselves kuba futurists my lineage was also one of them but after a while he started growing tired of kuba futurism also because it wasn’t something that Russians had actually thought about it was something that was mainly copied or that came from other art movements in particular he was really interested in the intersection where common sense and absurdity come into conflict he started experimenting with these ideas and in particular with the concept of the absurd to the point where he started painting shapes on a white background and here we have a new art movement suprematism Disney our movement was focused on abstraction and it concerned 100% non-descriptive artworks one of malaya Beach pursue primitives artworks was leisure in a black square on a white background and that’s it and do you know how it was called black square and this was of course also the point of it because by not giving the artwork a different name something that could be deeper maybe he wanted the visitor to really focus on what the painting was just a black square on a white background he didn’t want visitors to go and look for a meaning beyond the painting itself he just was what it was a black square and Malkovich also used to said that he managed to reduce anything to nothing he was really happy because he had freed art from the burden of the objects and he just wanted visitors to look at the painting and how it was made at the texture of the paint but not considering the subject because there was no subject moreover many of each wanted his paintings to give the idea of the infinite of the universe and the world and it is for this reason the usually super Matisse paintings never have a frame around them so that they are not restricted to that specific area and let’s be honest I know what you’re thinking I know exactly what you’re thinking you’re thinking I could have done him myself because at least condition his paintings could have been enjoyed for what they were they at least had colors they had weird shapes but this is just a black square you’re thinking this I’m sure the thing is that you have to consider the context where it was made at the time no one had ever seen something that was not representing a subject that didn’t have a subject it was the first time that people actually saw abstract painting and just imagine the critics when they saw something like this it was really a revolutionary because at the time they were the first one they thought about it they thought about this kind of painting as art at the time was another really important artists that were innovation in the sculpture field and that is vladimir tatlin he was always working strictly in contact with my image and it is for this reason that the to influence each other however today was defined as a constructivist pequeña was interested in the physical properties of the materials that he was going to use to create a sculpture and for the first time Tesla invented sculptures that were not there to represent something of our world there were just cultures that were made of materials and that was it it was just like money bitch who didn’t represent anything in his paintings his cultures were just objects in their own right and it is at this moment that we return back to Europe and we follow another art movement that follows let’s say the same basis of suprematism and constructivism and that is this which I’m not going to pronounce because I don’t know Dutch it is also called a new plastic ism and this is another huge I could have done it myself but before I saying this please wait and hear what I have to say about this art movement so piet mondrian is the first artist that everyone think about when thinking about new plastic ism and this is one of his art works but wait because he is not what it seems so new plastic ism actually comes from plastic art which is in general paintings and sculptures with the perfect neo which means of course new so a new way of creating and thinking about paintings and sculptures and this is because it is based on a different concept on a different approach to art Mandarin was trying to define a way to paint something to create art that would simplify everything that we know he wanted to simplify the greatest conflicts of life and that is because at the time there was the first world war and his goal was trying to help society to start afresh to start anew after this huge conflict his art wanted to express plastically what all things have in common once again he didn’t use any recognizable subjects in his art because he wanted his paintings not to mimic life he wanted his paintings to be part of life I’m sure that you’ve seen one of his paintings somewhere because this pattern is really really famous it has been used by design companies by if so no home for example for one of his collections and so I’m sure that you’ve seen it somewhere but have you actually wondered what it means and if there is a meaning if there is a goal behind this paintings so the white background is just to provide a pure and neutral basis on which to start painting the grade of black lines which by the way are always a symmetrical were there to provide a sense of movement and then this palette of colors had the goal to balance everything no colors had to dominate over others another really important artists of this movement who was a thief on this book who was also one of the founders together with Mondrian and to conclude this art movement was trying to find unity through the relationship between colors shapes forms and lands and this was the last information this videos over 40 days well hope you’ve enjoyed it and you’ve learned something new please let me know in the comments down below or on
