Divided - Description

Wassily Kandinsky’s 1928 painting Divided is a celebration of the power manifested in the form of bisection. This watercolor and ink piece feels like two paintings on the same canvas due to the gargantuan line running from top to bottom in the composition. On the left a background of green plays host to a vertical rectangle, also divided down the middle into two sections of eight for a total of sixteen boxes. Above, a series of interwoven circles rests in sharp contrast to the domination of straight lines and hard angles at work on both sides. The background of the right side of Divided, for that matter, is covered in red and fades to white as does the green on the left. This side is a celebration of line but also includes a sharp juxtaposition of a curved lines against the unbending triangle that rests below the pentagon near the bottom of the right side. Kandinsky plays to the geometric observer in this piece, transforming his canvas into a visual playground where his audience might delight freely in the shapes depicted. As always with Abstract Expressionism, however, it is important to look for aesthetic qualities before symbolic meaning lest deeper symbolic meaning occur than originally intended. Divided is a testament to Kandinsky’s ever searching artistic vocabulary for expressing himself through geometric sequence and sagacity of color.
