Kazimir Severinovich Malevich - an artist of Russian painting, who managed to turn abstraction into reality. The pointless image for the artist was something inspirational and poetic. The nondescript artist-abstractionism was a fan of the works of Repin and Shishkin, the great Russian landscape painters. Critics are amazed how Malevich, portraying abstraction on canvases, was simultaneously engaged in the creation of landscapes.
One of these works was the painting by Kazimir Malevich “Spring”. The author smoothly moves from dark strict forms (Suprematism) to a bright simplification of the image. The origins of such a style as Fauvism originate from the works of French writers. The artist does not try to fit the picturesque paintings of others, he tries to convey the essence of everyday culture and folklore.
The work "Spring" expresses joy at the onset of the first heat. The shades of green that characterize the spring breakthrough prevail. A small house is located between the trees, they magnificently dissolve their new leaves. The place in the middle of the courtyard is deserted, but children play cute on the right side. This simplicity attracts the viewer with its streams of light energy and kindness. A key feature of the artist was the desire for airiness and lightness in his works, it is precisely this moment that is present in this work.
Malevich tried to show that abstraction is not a fairy-tale world in which everything is formal and accurate, but simply a new direction that conveys the feelings of artists of the twentieth century. Poetry and calm do not fade away in the paintings, thanks to the color of light. Using the technique of Suprematism, Malevich tried to get the viewer to get inspired impressions when looking at his masterpieces.
The artist’s modesty surprised not only art critics, but also his close friends. Today, many paintings by Kazimir Malevich are in the Russian Museum of St. Petersburg, and occupy a worthy place in the genre of abstract art painting.
