UNIQLO ArtSpeaks: Sarah Meister on

“Gordon Parks presented a picture of crime in the U.S. that managed to preserve the anonymity of so-called criminals, and by doing that, undermined whether or not we should be considering them criminals at all.”

Analysis of the crescent Moon and Venus, reveals that the painting captures the early morning hours near the Summer Solstice, 1889 — just before sunrise.

Victory over Black ... "Black Square" is "Victory over the Sun" opera staged in 1913 (where the Sun is a symbol of traditional culture). In 1914 the war broke out. In 1915, Malevich presented Suprematism at the 0.10 exhibition "Black Square", in the red corner and became an icon of the avant-garde and denoting absolutely nothing. The point from which the development of all contemporary art began. But Malevich did not know that in fact there is more dark energy and dark matter than the Sun and all the stars of the Universe, so our task is to shed light on this darkness.
