About

Suprematism was an art movement, focused on basic geometric forms, founded by Kazimir Malevich in Russia, around 1913. The term Suprematism refers to an abstract art based upon “the supremacy of pure artistic feeling” rather than on visual depiction of objects. Malevich created a suprematist “grammar” based on fundamental geometric forms; in particular, the square and the circle. For Malevich, it is upon the foundations of absolute non-objectivity that the future of the universe will be built – a future in which appearances, objects, comfort, and convenience no longer dominate.

Bushwick based artist and gallerist Mary Judge and Brooklyn based artist Gilbert Hsiao have distilled their visual vocabularies into a similar austere grammar. Yet, unlike Malevich, they use the simplicity of these fundamental forms, the circle and the square, as their jumping off point, and move into maximalist paintings employing figure ground reversals, pattern and optical diversion.
