You asked for it(or at least several of you did LOL), our next “In the Style of” master is Russian Abstract artist Vasily Kandinsky. A friend recommended using him as one of our artists before I started my list but I didn’t recognize the name…. until I looked at some of his paintings. Then BAM! I realized his paintings were some of my favorites from an Art History course I took a million years ago.

  He is commonly known for his colorful paintings of shapes and free flowing lines (a style he developed after WWI and very different from his early art). He established two groups of works/kinds of painting –Compositions and Improvisations. The title Compositions implies that the arrangements of geometric shapes used were purposely planned and ordered. The Improvisations, on the other, hand were completely the opposite, being totally unplanned and prompted on by subconscious feeling. He completely eliminated the real subject matter of his works by focusing entirely on the “emotional and psychological” properties of color, line, and shape. He thought the artist’s true self could be expressed entirely by color.

Each participant will have 2 partners and be responsible for making one regulation size ATC for each. The deadline to sign up will be November 8 and partners will be posted Nov. 10. The ATCs will need to be posted no later than Dec.9. If your address is *private* please make sure to PM your address to your swap partners in order to receive your cards. Make sure to mark these dates on your calendar!

I think the results of this swap should be pretty interesting to say the least =)
