Inspired by Kazimir Malevich who underwent such an initiatory experience as he came to the Suprematist vision, he felt “a kind of timidity bordering on fear when I was called upon to leave ‘the world of will and idea’ in which I had lived and worked and in the reality of which I had believed. <…>. If all artists could see the crossroads of these celestial paths, if they could comprehend these monstrous runways and the weaving of our bodies with the clouds in the sky, then they would not paint chrysanthemums.” This resonates personal experience during Pandemic reflecting frequently a similar feeling of profound fear and ability to open wider doors to consciousness and subconscious mind. This feeling of fear is subsequently overcome by the idyllic sensation of creating black “Soul’s Journey” painting on white canvas by using Suprematism conception on quadrilateral canvas.
