I hit my artistic peak with my rendering of my uncle s Conan the Barbarian upper arm tattoo complete with blood splatter when I was eight Truly appreciating art always seemed like the province of finer souls A secret protected on par with gypsy divination and Shamrock shakes I guess I always thought art was beyond words Kandinsky, in his brief book, proves otherwise Incredibly lucid and articulate, Kandinsky leads the reader to move past an intellectual appreciation of art The spectator is too ready to look for a meaning in a picture i.e., some outward connection between its various parts Our materialistic age has produced a type of spectator or connoisseur, who is not content to put himself opposite a picture and let it say its own message Instead of allowing the inner value of the picture to work, he worries himself in looking for closeness to nature, or temperament, or handling, or tonality, or perspective, or what not His eye does not probe the outer expression to arrive at the inner meaning pg 49. With academic discipline, he explains the effects of color and form on the very non academic soul He effectively evokes the spiritual response to color through metaphor It would be easy for Kandinsky to hide behind vague explanations to increase the sense of profundity in abstract art But he doesn t He maps out the themes of abstraction concisely All in an effort to go beyond meaning and aesthetic His goal is to attune the soul to the effect of color It s all quite sincere and inspiring.

This was worth reading Some of the language was a little flowery so I will probably read it again at some point It makes some interesting points I wish the art was in color and not black and white since he talks so much about the significance of color especially red It was a fast read and interesting so it was worth my time to read this one. . To me, Kandinsky is the Kandinsky from the Bauhaus period, when his paintings were dominated by abstract compositions comprising lines, circles, triangles, and bold colours Though Concerning the Spiritual in Art was written some ten years prior, the book may as well be about the explorations in artworks such as these Part I of the book has one memorable idea Kandinsky depicts the life of the spirit as a triangle, forever moving gently upwards, or rather, forever moved upwards by artists the misunderstood souls who forge the way for the rest of us.The life of the spirit may be fairly represented in diagram as a large acute angled triangle divided horizontally into unequal parts with the narrowest segment uppermost The lower the segment the great it is in breath, depth, and area.The whole triangle is moving slowly, almost invisibly forwards and upwards Where the apex was today the second segment is tomorrow what today can be understood only by the apex and to the rest of the triangle is an incomprehensible gibberish, forms tomorrow the true thought and feeling of the second segment In every segment of the triangle are artists Each one of them who can see beyond the limits of his segment is a prophet to those about him, and helps the advance of the obstinate whole But those who are blind, or those who retard the movement of the triangle for baser reasons, are fully understood by their fellows and acclaimed for their genius Every segment hungers consciously or, much often, unconsciously for their corresponding spiritual food.Part II of the book takes up the principles of painting specifically, the psychic effect of forms and colours The former can stand on their own, but the latter are meaningless without boundaries and contrasting shades To Kandinsky two main division of colour are immediate into yellow pulsating, expanding and blue cool, withdrawing and into white peace pregnant with possibility and black profound, deathly pause Other colours are considered too, and described with pithy statements.Just as orange is red brought nearer to humanity by yellow, so violet is red withdrawn from humanity by blue.Much of the book is spent on drawing parallels between music and colour form Kandinsky wishes to compose on a painting.Shades of colour, like those of sound, are of a much finger texture and awake in the soul emotions too fine to be expressed in words.The parallels were thought provoking I could not ask of book on colour theory for we can only forge a path ahead by illuminating the past, learning from it, then building upon it.Theory is the lamp which sheds light on the petrified ideas of yesterday and of the distant past. . What saves this book is superlative phrase turning and humor, intended or otherwise If you ve ever been tempted to bronze your subjective aesthetic and mount it in the museum between philosophy and science, this will be there to remind you how nearly impossible it is to pull off Kandinsky couldn t do it and neither can you I mean he sets forth to launch a theory of color analogized to harmonics, but what really comes through is an abiding disdain for yellow, coupled with a love letter to blue His statement of artistic intent you gotta pat him on the back for that idealistic whoosh appears equally specious It s not that he s lying It s just that his sleight of hand skills are pretty amateur so the part where he goes oh so my plan includes this, this, and that, from this day forward comes across pretty nakedly as a review of past and current work It reminds me of having to write artist statements These are a bitch, which is my thoroughly unscientific perspective They are a bitch because they are often than not worded as a request for a statement of artistic intent Last I checked, I m going to pick up this brush and paint until I get lost, and paint some until I come out the other side Motherfucker rarely cuts it Because that doesn t really translate into anything but maximum snark it s sort of like getting spattered with paint for asking what are you doing The thing is, that statement is absolutely honest, it just doesn t make sense in any language outside the living craft of painting, and so to write a statement, I have to open the door to that compact structure of dream logic, walk outside, and look in the window and describe what I see This, however, is not the same thing as writing a grocery list, even if it s written on paper covered with vegetables, as a bullet list All I can do is write what I see I can t predict where process will take me, the most I can do is make preparatory drawings as points of departure Maybe Kandinsky was a precog His enthusiasm for the path away from representation, for the synthesis of the arts, for advances of the spirit through science likely conflated observable trends in his existing body of work with future intent And it s not just a little heart breaking but funny, always funny to encounter his One True Quest towards pure expression conveyed upon such muddy waters. Theory is the lamp which sheds light on the petrified ideas of yesterday and of the distant past. The first time I saw a painting by Kandinsky was in the Guggenheim Museum Back then, I really didn t have much appreciation for visual art, least of all abstract paintings Nevertheless, I remember being intrigued, and finally fascinated by his work The way he was able to select forms reminiscent of, but not dependent on, real life objects delighted my eye Later, I saw a special exhibition of Kandinsky s work in Madrid It was divided by place and time, taking me through his Russian, German, and Parisian period, during which he moved from representative art to complete abstraction I came away from that exhibit with my interest in Kandinsky re confirmed, and now I can say that he is one of my favorite 20th century artists Concerning the Spiritual in Art is a short book like an extended essay by Kandinsky, detailing his personal philosophy of art For Kandinsky, the artist is like a prophet, able to see farther, think deeply, and feel keenly than ordinary people The great artist s function is to satisfy the cravings of the spirit In music this is done through rhythm and melody in painting through color and form The spiritual function of art has been hampered by what Kandinsky calls materialism representative art The accurate reproduction of an object s appearance is pointless in itself what matters is its truth to the inner, not the outer, reality Then follows a long chapter on Kandinsky s theory of colors which colors evoke which emotions, and their relationship to one another.As a work of theory, Kandinsky s book is somewhat disappointing It is of a manifesto than a treatise a simple declaration of Kandinsky s opinions As such, it is interesting as a look into the mind of a great artist than as a piece of art theory Kandinsky s discussion of colors and shapes, for example, is silly as analysis, but fascinating as a peek into Kandinsky s brain Triangles, circles, squares reds, yellows, blues all these were like characters for Kandinsky, with their own personalities and temperaments It was a pleasure to get to know him better.
