Kazimir Malevich always pleased with his masterpieces of all people who were not indifferent to Suprematism. If you delve into the preface of his paintings and this particular work of art, it is worth noting that Malevich was able to invent a special and unique in its kind and vision theory of abstract art, which is actually called suprematism.
The very idea lies in the fact that all the artist’s compositions, made in the style of Suprematism, were initially aimed at showing the author’s emancipation, from the imitative subordination of any thing, to the natural disclosure of creativity.
In the composition of Kazimir Malevich, entitled “Athletes”, all the figures made on the canvas are completely subordinate not only to the color composition, but also organized in terms of the rhythm of the entire composition, which is completely alienated from any semantic load or reality of being. The picture is focused on the concentration of their personal energy and dynamics, which are completely outside such categories as space and time.
As for the compositional construction of the color scale, which is used in the work, the entire composition is completely subordinated to the principles of symmetry. As for the facelessness of the “athletes” themselves, this is done solely for one purpose, it is necessary in order to further highlight the global, even in a certain sense, cosmic representation and sense of the world, to the extent that the artist himself represents it.
The picture shows a person, not as a human being, but as a person associated with art and at the same time completely independent from the viewer’s individuality or from the artist himself. This is the unique and inimitable style of the author.
