“Every work technically forms in the way in which the cosmos formed—by means of catastrophes, which in the end create a symphony out of the chaotic roar of instruments, called spherical music. The creation of a work is the creation of the world.” In his art Kandinsky aimed to render the laws of the cosmos and the human spirit. He saw himself as a mediator who could sense the vibrations of the world’s soul and convey them to the beholders of his art.
Kandinsky’s so-called organic abstraction contrasts with the clear geometrical shapes of Suprematism and even Cubofuturism. It conveys the seemingly unorganized structures of life, which are full of movement. A diagonal tension dominates this composition, yet many small elements distract the eye, evoking associations with nature.
