Kazimir Malevich

The Kazimir Malevich exhibition at the Tate was by far one of the best exhibitions I had the pleasure of seeing in 2014. To witness such a transformation in Malevich’s artistic style from Post-Impressionism to Cubo-Futurism to Suprematism was completely mesmerizing.

This painting, Morning in the Village after Snowstorm , particularly stood out for me as the contrast between the cold blues and vibrant reds of geometrically shaped villagers and cottages was startling. This is not an idyllic winter scene; nor do I think it is intended that way. This is a village still at work and persevering through the harshness of winter and challenging social circumstances, with political undertones of what would really come to force a few years after this painting was made.

On that note, I wish you all a very happy Christmas.
