meanings and shades

Happy birthday ladies/ mothers/ girlfriends/ all kind of female breathing πŸ˜€ .

Today I will talk about Olga Rozanova, a Russian painter from XX-th century.
Olga Rozanova was an abstract painter, Suprematist – told you about it last week! – and had a full life of art behind.
She followed the classes at the Stroganov School of Applied Art.
Since 1912 she started a friendship with the Futurist poet Aleksei Kruchenykh whom will in 1916 marries.
These times she will develop a pure combination between volumes, colours and lines.

City on fire

The composition β€˜CITY ON FIRE’ is a Suprematist painting – the Cubo- Futurist painting too – has a special relationship between color and the line.
Masculine lines, broken and in the same forming a whole, but with the symbol + colors forming β€œthe true relationship at the same time expresses the meaning.”
In the Suprematist art the connection between the new building – unit – and color as a symbol which represents objects or human figures is one close – one without the other would not exist.

The symbol of white color is fantastic, like the fire – represented by yellow, orange – should be quenched with a non-color. Here THE yellow is a central/ focus, surrounded by shades of white to gray – lots of gray- which covers the monotony of the buildings β€˜ walls β€˜.
Yellow turns into a lava at the bottom of the painting – specifically the right corner – as if the composition have a flow, a hidden fluidity hidden between those jags.

Here we see – again- the game between volumes and colours.
It’s like you get into another space, the top down and vice versa.
The colors are brutal, full of life, separated by a black that gives a new meaning – of moderation or veering sight of the center of the painting – as if reveals to you other important points in the painting.
We have many squares covered by semicircles to equalize the masculine energy or β€˜ gross β€˜.
The sexual energy is intense by red and balanced in blue – the same pure colour – and close to green, that gives a new direction of thinking: moderation and lower down to Earth.

Simultaneous representation of a king of hearts and a king of diamonds

People are abstract, not human, less stylized and full of masculine lines with the secondary colors – pink and other colors coming from mixtures-.
The skin color is inhumane and the look – oblique – β€˜re going to think of women from other worlds.
The two kings – hearts and diamonds – are both corps of vanity and different way of thinking – emotional and rational-. The diamonds are forms of rationality or reason / moderation and the hearts are symbols of lust, emotionality or various shades of feelings.
Even here the colors are pure, unmixed and there is a tie between hot and cold – COLOURS!.

This series of suprematist paintings bring Olga to the major Suprematist at the time. Working with Malevich and many artists she has developed expressiveness and emotional paintings, even if Cubo – Futurism is less expressive in feelings.
The cold light with metamorphosis and hidden emotional issues give a new aura to works: human / inhuman way.
Here are not strictly abstract objects, they are also β€˜ problems β€˜ of society seen abstract.

Universal war

Universal war

In this ‘ Universal war’, Olga brigs blue – a symbol of air / reason – too full of other objects that distract him: small non – forms which are β€˜floatingβ€˜ or β€˜flying’ through the blue table – the reason.
The white is a symbol of purity – perhaps a new world in which those who died in this war will go – or a way to show death – they go to heaven.
Orange give a short victory – nobody knows from which side – but… there is an easily excited world, and the dirty green – it’s combined – give the moderation of the facts or by tracking / or during the battles.
These are my observations about Rozanova’s works and world.
Hope you liked what you’ve just read.
