Upwards - Description

Upwards 1929 was painted by Russian Abstract Expressionist Wassily Kandinsky in the aforementioned year. It is a work of oil on cardboard measuring seventy by forty-nine centimeters. This painting exhumes a confident and steady tone certain to arouse feelings of profundity in all who gaze upon its didactic approach abstract thinking. The painting clearly emphasizes the feeling of taking place in the sky, highlighted by the appearance of motion existing in the split and shifting circle. Kandinsky’s toned down pallet places greater emphasis on form and movement in this painting, reducing the tones to dulled down blues, a mellow orange and an off white. There is a strong linear drive governing the structural quality with a vertical axis running directly through the center of the canvas. In addition, there is a replication of another axis in the upper right region of the canvas that was included with the intention of serving as a visual reminder of the concept of structural balance and upward motion. Kandinsky’s approach to this painting, as with most of his abstract pieces, is to let the viewer take the pilot’s seat and steer the painting into whatever direction they should so choose. Upwards 1929 is a paradigm of independent thought and growth inviting new deliberation of form apart from premeditated meaning already given by most artists in a finished piece. Upwards 1929 entreats you look at the world differently after viewing it.
