A BAUHAUS THEORY.
The second of our Bauhaus-schooled artists, Wassily Kandinsky, was instrumental in defining geometric artwork. Kandinsky demonstrated the design as more than just repeating shapes by defining shape and colour as a method of placement.
The Bauhaus Theory is almost impossible to define and to do so would almost certainly devalue the significance it has and still poses society. To champion Bauhaus you need only look at the students that used to grace the halls of its Design School in Germany. One of those students, Kandinsky, emphasised the importance and value of every single object. So much more than a geometric arrangement, he intricately positioned and spaced objects, all while obsessing over the colour that supplies that object life. Our interpretation of Kandinsky’s Bauhaus theory, seen in Big Digger and Mountain Girl, is to demonstrate the importance of a two-colour palette showcasing an intricate arrangement of lines, rectangles and squares.
