Part of our Canvas to Reality Series, Tango Hotel partnered with Wassily Kandinsky to release a limited capsule.
Wassily Kandinsky’s Counter Weights (Gegengewichte) was painted in 1926 during his most productive years. This period was a dedication to Geometric Abstraction where he experimented with colors and shapes. On canvas, you see a constellation of geometric shapes overlapping and intersecting in complexity as a response to entering a new era of architecture and technology.
Black Lines (Schwarze Linien), painted in 1913, is one of Kandinsky’s first paintings of nonobjective abstract. The painting contains a network of thin agitated lines, floating vibrant circular forms and colorful brushwork in the background. During this period Kandinsky valued hiding abstract aspects of the world within each of his works creating specific responses to each of his viewer. Kandinsky mentions in his essay, “Picture with the White Edge,” that the hidden pictorial “emerge unnoticed from the picture and [would thus be] less suited to the eye than the soul.”
Part of the Canvas to Reality Series, Tango Hotelgives artists a new medium to express themselves and their creative talents. Artists range from pioneers of contemporary art, abstract, and surrealist art to artists of sound and motion. In addition to truly appreciated art, we look to the founders of movements and styles.
