You might be surprised to find yourself enjoying geometric wall art and geometric paintings in general, despite there being little or no figurative model in such compositions...But figuration is not the only plastic means for inspiring emotion. Curved, broken and even connected lines, accompanied by color, can be enough to win your heart. This is why KAZoART offers a sublime collection of geometric paintings with varied compositions.
Frantisek Kupka (Disks of Newton) and Vassily Kandinsky were the first painters to produce geometric paintings. Over time, figuration was replaced entirely by lines and color (eg. Several Circles and On the Points, Kandinsky).
In 1915, Kasimir Malevich published From Cubism to Suprematism, theorizing a pictorial language composed solely of geometric shapes. These geometric paintings, such as Black Square and White on White reflected his theory that the economy of means and form has much more to say than a simple figurative depiction.
Continuing in the same vein, artists like Theo Van Doesburg and Piet Mondrian offered works meticulously constructed from precise rules (absence of oblique lines, absence of symmetry, use of pure color). Notable geometric paintings from these artists include Mondrian's Composition with Red Blue and Yellow and Van Doesburg's Counter-Composition XIV.
Geometry in art exists whenever an artist takes proportion and perspective into account. Since the Renaissance period, therefore, math has dictated the composition of geometric paintings. Nonetheless, geometric shapes, which can be defined as lines, straight lines, squares, rectangles, circles and triangles, only became the sole subject of certain compositions in the 20th century.
In geometric paintings, the focus is on a new, very stripped back, almost the bare essentials of a plastic language. Waves such as Suprematism, Geometric Abstraction, Constructivism and Neoplasticism favored form and color, ousting the figurative which had until then reigned as the undisputed master in the history of art.
