Hanns Kunitzberger and Winston Roeth : The Naked Icon
Matters of the spirit have appeared more often than not to be inherent, if elusive and thus vague, subject matter of monochrome paintings as a genre. Going back to Malevich’s ’naked icons‘, his black square on white ground, his circle and cross, the reduction to ‚pure‘ form by means of absolute abstraction has been an attempt to represent a ‚higher‘ reality. One could also see in this: a metaphysical, cosmic, uncanny reality that was to be transmitted through the artist’s soul, not his mind, onto the canvas.
