My aim is to post articles within this theme on a regular basis. I will give every article a number because I expect certain subjects will return in my artwork. You can easily find all articles in this new theme by clicking "artistic explorations" in the Category box on the right.
Wassily Kandinsky (16 December 1866 - 13 December 1944)
My first introduction with Kandinsky's work was through a blank postcard I got for free via a gallery. I was a young teenager and thinking about going to art school in The Netherlands. Instantly I was a big fan of the Russian painter and art theorist, who is credited with painting the first modern abstract works.
During an art course I did in 1989 to prepare for my application, I learned about etching and played with some geometrical shapes. These were first drawn and then cut into the unprotected parts of a metal plate with acid.
