Gravitation - Description

Russian Abstract Expressionist Wassily Kandinsk’s Gravitation is a piece washed in overtones of dark, mature colors such as brown and maroon. The painting is cut into four quadrants in the middle of the canvas, although none of the lines reach the end of the canvas. Rather, they hang suspended over several circles, creating a sense of abstract order at work here. The composition has the feeling of tension between open and closed objects as well as balance between similar shapes. Kandinsky, as an Abstract artist, is attempting here to prove that color is the best way to indicate mood and feeling in a painting. Kandinsky’s paintings worked around stripped down shapes to covey a feeling of possibility when looking at the world abstractly. Shapes are pure and shapes are powerful, as evident in the solid background looming behind the spread of rich colors. Rather than looking for symbolism in a Kandinsky piece it is important to approach it with the possibility of opening your mind to alternate perspective. This way Kandinsky’s color and line can speak in its own language. Gravitation is a testament to imagination and a rejection of the belief that to be create decent art one must strive to create the commonly perceived view of reality. Kandinsky is remembered for his bravery in branching away and creating his own interpretation of reality.
