For the lover of everything art related…
Geometric Art is created using geometric elements, shapes… Geometric art is inspired from geometry.
Geometry … a branch of mathematics related of shape, size, and relative position of figures.
Geometric shapes are made by humans. And crystals made in nature, are also geometric.
Several abstract art movements and tendencies originated on geometry …
In the 20th century, Constructivism and Suprematism began in Russia.
Concrete Art, was founded in Europe in the 1930s and went to Latin America. Abstract art that was an emphasis on planes and color.
And in American in the 1960s we had minimalism and post-painterly abstraction.
Geometric shapes refers to geometry.
Is geometry art or math? Both.
What do we use geometry for? To draw and create shapes, objects, etc.
Art are made of points and lines. Some art are created in simple shapes, such as,
The Triangle. A polygon with three edges and three vertices. It is one of the basic shapes in geometry.
Square. In geometry, a square is a regular quadrilateral.
Circle. Perfect or not. A circle is a simple closed shape.
Art with circle…
Lines… abstract art made with lines creating geometric shapes.
Art movements that utilized geometric shapes includes… Bauhaus,
Futurism was the modern art movement which started in Italy circa 1908–1912.
Painting by Kazimir Malevich 1916
Minimalism. It’s simplistic, it is often interpreted as a reaction against Abstract expressionism.
Yves Klein, IKB 191, 1962, monochrome painting. Klein was a pioneer in the development of minimal art.
Fractal art. It’s a form of algorithmic art created by calculating fractal objects and representing the calculation results as still images, animations.
So, geometric art is inspired from geometry.
It is designed and created with lines, circles, square and rectangles perfect or not.
Geometric art design comes in various types, size and shapes.
Abstract art was formed in the early 20th century by artists frustrated by following the same style of old painters.
Geometric art had a cult following in the early Greek period of 900 BC, as evident by concentric circles and other shapes on their vases and paintings.
Fact. In 1929, Alfred H. Barr, Jr. was the first American art historian to use the term ‘geometric abstraction’ in relation to the works of Vasily Kandinsky.
Vasily Kandinsky, Light Picture, December 1913. Oil and natural resin on canvas.
Kandinsky to describe geometric abstract as having “nothing whatever to do with an object.”
A characteristic of geometric art is the perfect shapes, or not formed by curved or straight lines along or not a continuous path.
Objects come from simple shapes as: square, circle, triangle, rectangle, etc.
Geometric abstraction is an art form that uses basic geometric shapes.
If photography could capture any life form… Why realistic painting?
So I create the non existent things. The abstract ones. The geometrics ones. The very emotional ones. The vibrant ones. The colorful ones. The “imazinarion” ones.
Remember that you can do it too.
That’s all for today.
