Description and analysis
''Pure''. This is the title of this series of works of art, adopting the ideology of the Russian avant-garde artistic movement of the early 20th century: An art based upon ''the supremacy of pure artistic feeling rather than on visual depiction of objects''. Trying desperately to free art from the dead weight of the real world, suprematist artists only work with shapes reduced to their basic geometric forms including rectangles, triangles, circles and lines often in intense and beautiful colours but in a limited palette. These forms are floated against a usually whitish ground, and the feeling of colour in space in suprematist painting is a crucial aspect of it. In this ways, suprematist artists try to achieve aesthetic and spiritual purity.
The depicted scenes of the paintings of this series move to the same direction: figures of unspecified, indistinct age and gender are involved in activities reflecting a child carefreeness, a priceless innocence, and a playful attitude. The compositions offer the viewer a fresh and strange world, images full of discreet feeling. They are aimed at removing the real world entirely and leaving us to contemplate what kind of picture of the world is offered.
