Last week I posted three works in homage to the later geometric abstract paintings of Wassily Kandinsky. I still had him in mind while working on the current three compositions posted below. I decided to do a series of abstracts that would again be highly influenced by Kandinsky but different from last week’s images particularly in the use of a more pastel palette and with an elongated format with a ratio of two to one (the long side twice as long as the short side).
Many of the elements of the new designs are similar to last week’s; circles, squares, triangles, checkerboards along with straight and curved lines. In creating them, I arranged the subject matter so that the final images could be viewed in any position, vertically, horizontally or reversed. The colors and overall shape of each allows them to be arranged as various combinations of triptychs as well.
Here are various triptych possibilities.
