THE BLACK POT

Still Life with a Black Pot, 2014

Oil/ canvas

80 x 63cm

 

Painting has lactonic expression. In the center of attention are shown different timeworn objects - dark brown kettle with drapes on antique chair. Like Malevic's 'Black Square' (1915) I have shown the spirit world 'solemnity of universe'. As less objects are shown as bigger intern energetic strength is. Everything focuses on contrasting dark, steamy pot. Steam symbolises the spirit of present which connects one world to another. The main aim of painting is to make viewers to analyse and realize real importance of life and to remind about reality.

 

In the painting are important tonal nuances and the relationship between them, the materiality of objects and one of the most important elements which is symbol of life - light.
