Schweres Rot - Description

Russian Abstract Expressionist Wassily Kandinsk’s Schweres Rot is a piece dominated by a red background and a balance of positioning between bent and unbent lines. Color and geometric sequence dominate this piece. It was the belief of the Expressionists that color should be the motor driving emotion in a painting. For this reason shapes are kept to a minimalist quality and colors are never muted. Rather, color in this piece is the force meant to identify with the audience. Kandinsky painted Schweres Rot with the intention of connecting with whoever should glance at it. It has an energy, or a pulse based on its sheer vitalizing power. Observe the balance between shapes occurring on the canvas. Look how the green triangle rests near the edge of the brown shape beneath it. Its angle sits juxtaposed next to a series of circles suspended in the space above it. It is a delicate relationship between grounded and ungrounded objects as well, with the circles appearing to be in motion while the rectangles sit stacked on top of one another. In addition Kandinsky slightly overthrows the power of the red background by introducing a yellow triangle to the right of the canvas. While the struggle between the two objects is small, it still exists and assists in balancing the overall spacial relationship occurring in the composition Schweres Rot.
