Stivriņa, Renāte: Composition 10. (inspired by W. Kandinsky)

Notes

  • Program notes: 

     

    Compositions are the quintessence of Wassily Kandinsky’s ideas, a culmination of his artistic vision at that particular moment; monumentalism, conscious composition-planning and the visible augmentation of an abstract image. „Since the very beginning…”, wrote Kandinsky, „the word ‚composition’ itself sounded like prayer to me”. His first Composition was made in 1910, the tenth (and last) in 1939, painted on a black background (a colour not tolerated by the artist; despite this, it dominates his last large-format works). For me, Composition 10. is an inspiration for two states: mobility and stability. It’s a reflection both on striving and being frozen in time, manoeuvring between those two, balancing and maintaining harmony with concern to whether either quality tips the scales. It is observation, focus and wondering, thinking and – eventually – a conclusion.
