Sonia Delaunay's Electric Prisms

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.
