Annely Juda Fine Art is pleased to present this exhibition of works by Francois Morellet and Kasimir Malevich. Francois Morellet’s first solo-exhibition at Annely Juda Fine Art was in 1977 and Kasimir Malevich’s work has been included in our first Non-Objective World exhibition in 1970 and in many since then.
The exhibition includes recent works by Morellet, which reflect his interest in Kasimir Malevich’s Suprematist works. The three Sous-Prmatisme works in this exhibition use the three Suprematis motifs of circle, square and cross. These works are made of white neon tubes and are essentially white on white. The Negatif series plays on Malevich in a different way. The works all include a black spare and white neon tubes with the neon tubes positioned in different angles and juxtaposed to the black square.
We are delighted to include a major painting by Kasimir Malevich Black Square, which has been kindly lent to us by the State Museum of Contemporary Art – Costakis Collection, Thessaloniki in Greece. Also in this exhibition is a selection of 13 drawings by Malevich.
Born in 1879 to Polish parents and died in 1935 in Leningrad, Kasimir Malevich is one of the first abstract artists of the twentieth century. Painter, draftsman, sculptor and theorist, he was the creator of an artistic movement which he named “Suprematism.” His works are present in the collections of many major museums worldwide.
