Concerning the Spiritual in Art

As every word spoken rouses an inner vibration, so likewise does every object represented. I read the following review from an Amazon reader.

Nel, it is very good; very helpful and prescient by far. The spectator is too ready to look for a meaning in a picture- i.

I aarte he sets forth to launch a theory of color analogized to harmonics, but what really comes through is an abiding disdain for yellow, coupled with a love letter to blue. Takes some concentration to understand it all and follow the metaphors he carries through several chapters, but I really did enjoy it. The more an artist uses these spirityale forms, the deeper and more confidently will he advance into the kingdom of the abstract. Kandinsky, in his brief book, proves otherwise.

Kandinsky depicts the life of the spirit as a triangle, forever moving gently upwards, or rather, forever moved upwards by artists—the m To me, Kandinsky is the Kandinsky from the Bauhaus period, when his paintings were dominated by abstract compositions comprising lines, circles, triangles, and bold colours.


Kandinsky’s mindset is, at the same time, premodern in its perception of the spiritual essence, but postmodern deconstructive in its artistic articulation. The parallels were thought-provoking.

But abstraction on its own and as the highest ideal is like pulling up a plant to see how the roots are growing.

And we landinsky art, in the full artistic and theological senses of these words, to “magnify” and “illuminate” what incarnational spirituality looks like. Angrily they abuse him as charlatan or madman. Nelp agree with most of it, and he brings out some of the more important points Kandinsky offers in his book. To deprive oneself of this possibility is to limit one’s powers of expression. It currently resides in the Russian Museum in Saint Petersburg.

And of course, there are the comparisons to music that are to be expected of a painter, and probable synesthete, who gave his works titles like “Composition” and “Improvisation” and “Symphony”. The book omitted title and attribution though we can assume it is a work by Kandinsky in …more The cover painting certainly is difficult to track down.

I will just retain the “language of form and color. Theory is the lamp which sheds light on the petrified ideas of yesterday and of the more distant past. A Baha’i pamphlet with that title was published in the ‘s.

Nevertheless, I remember being intrigued, and finally fascinated by his work. I didn’t quite know what to expect from this book, but I got more out of it than I had thought I would. Much of the book is spent on drawing parallels between music and colour-form: This has a social function, for “each period of culture produces an art of its own which can never be repeated”.


Dense and could be a better translation, I think. Sadler, offers additional explanation of Kandinsky’s art and theories, while a new Preface by Arge Stratton discusses Kandinsky’s career as a whole and the impact of the book. Kandinsky, who was one of the founders of modern art, sets out to confront the crass materialism of his era and the trite kanidnsky that it was producing.

Feb 07, Yana Milenkova rated it really liked it. Many comments he let open for “future art” really point directly to sound art, installation art, etc. All in an effort to go beyond meaning and aesthetic. It causes disincarnation, which is another word for death, and so both the material and the spiritual wither.

Knadinsky I will reread it someday in a hard copy and see if it is the case. There he taught at the Bauhaus school of art and architecture from until the Nazis closed it in He is an artist who is completely “in tune” with all aspects of creativity.
