SPRING/SUMMER 2009

The black square is essential , and in Malevit j’s universe the one element that ties different dimensions togheter . The new art form emerged from the Concrete Art movement , which in its 1930 Concrete Art Manifest states that : »There is nothing more concrete or more real than a line , a colour , or a flat area of colour .

The artists’ language , the bright colours , straight lines and geometrical shapes transforms into a collection
