Abstraction: Alternative Depictions of Space

8 Mar

FROM A STICKY NOTE ON MY DESKTOP, INSPIRED BY MY MODERN RUSSIAN ART LECTURE TODAY:

Correspondences“, a poem by Baudelaire

Nature is a temple in which living pillars
Sometimes give voice to confused words;
Man passes there through forests of symbols
Which look at him with understanding eyes.

Like prolonged echoes mingling in the distance
In a deep and tenebrous unity,
Vast as the dark of night and as the light of day,
Perfumes, sounds, and colors correspond.

There are perfumes as cool as the flesh of children,
Sweet as oboes, green as meadows
— And others are corrupt, and rich, triumphant,

With power to expand into infinity,
Like amber and incense, musk, benzoin,
That sing the ecstasy of the soul and senses
.

KANDINSKY:

In ‘Concerning the Spiritual in Art,’ his treatise on form and color, Kandinsky associated the color blue with interiority and spiritual longing, describing it as “the typical heavenly color” and as possessing the “power of profound meaning.” In this sense – that his conception of symbolic values tended toward the absolute – the shifts in Kandinsky’s aesthetic were secondary to the constancy of his vision; they were manifestations of a restlessness that was technical rather than essential.
FORM COLOR AND SOUND
ABBRASSIVE, VIBRATES QUICKLY, ITS FAST: WHAT GEOMETRIC SHAPE IS THE FORMAL EQUIVILANT OF YELLOW? YELLOW SHA, TRIANGLE SHA, A BUGGLE OR A CANARY IS THE SOUND OF YELLOW, HIGH PITCHED
TRIANGLE

YELLOW HIGH SOUND: THE UNITING OF IT IS SUCCESSFUL WORK OF ART
BLUE IS SLOW, VIBRATES SLOWLY, CIRCLE IS MAIN COLOR, SOUND OF BLUE IS DOUBLE BASS, LONG LOW SOUND
FORM, SOUND, GEOMETRIC SHAPE
RED: SQUARE: OBO
GREEN: A COMPLACENT COLOR THAT DOESNT VIBRATES OUTWARDS OR INWARDS, DOESNT VIBRATE MUCH, SO GREEN IS THE BOUSIORSII IN THE KINGDOM OF THE COLORS, DOESNT USE IT MUCH BECAUSE ITS STATIC
