Painter Uses Geometric Shapes To Create Colorful Fragmentations of the Human Form

Neo-Constructivism Paintings by Georgy Kurasov

Russian artist Georgy Kurasov creates abstract paintings of women that vibrate with energy and color. These dynamic pictures are reminiscent of images seen through a kaleidoscope as each cool-faced figure is rendered using an array of saturated geometric shapes.

Originally trained as a sculptor, Kursaov continues to explore form in his painting practice. Although some mistake his style for Cubism, the artist actually adheres to the philosophy and aesthetics of neo-Constructivism. This movement, which originated in Eastern Europe, emphasizes unorthodox geometry, intersecting lines, and freedom of expression.

Similarly, Kurasov uses neo-Constructivist principles in his paintings by depicting men and women in fragmented form. Not only does this approach distort his subject's bodies into extreme proportions, but it also creates a surreal sense of space. The slivers of different colors construct a warped perspective in which objects are flattened until they appear two-dimensional. Altogether, these stylistic choices make each one of Kurasov's paintings a mesmerizing experience.
