|Ipad rendering of Sonia Delaunay's Electric Prisms|
This weeks painting is the beautiful Electric Prisms by the ever prolific Sonia Delaunay. Here is my Ipad rendition of the painting. She was a painter, an interior designer, a furniture designer, and a fashion designer. All of her work was informed by one idea, that of Geometric Abstraction. She used geometric shapes as a way to create the most non-objective abstractions. She once said of her husband, Robert Delaunay, who painted very similar abstractions, that " In Robert Delaunay I found a poet. A poet who wrote not with words but with colours." Isn't that a wonderful idea? Creating poems with color is dreamy. I believe that is exactly what Mrs. Delaunay did herself.
