    Wasilly Kandinsky. He was a true master of his craft and in 1911 he published a book called "Concerning the spiritual in art"and in the coming years much of modern art developed from the new principles in this very same book. Kandinsky thought that art should be a form of mucic, so to speak, and this was reflected in his work.He was concerned with expressing "the inner meaning" in his paintings. He tried to break down the barrrier between painting and music. Kandinsky said "Presumably the lines and colours have the same effect as harmony and rhythm in music have on the truly musical". Kandinsky was not just a great artist, he was a visionary and one of the truly profound persons. I would welcome any comments and discussions about what Kandinsky was truly after and passionate about.

    This is absolutely groundless thinking. It is also godless thinking. How can anything be spiritual unless it is contained in the Holy Inerrant Word of God, TheBiible...with Red Letters.

    It is widely thought that Kandinsky had a rare condition known as synaesthesia, one condition of which is that the person will have a strong association between certain sounds and certain colors. Kandinsky was able to "hear" color, so to speak. Kandinsky (who was also a musician) once said, "Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul."

    Speaking of obsession with colour, why the red letters, Kirksey, if you don't mind me asking?

    Maybe the Rev. was confusing Kandinsky with his lesser known contemporary, Butdinsky.

    An easy mistake to make...

    yeah, but seriously... even if you have never read any of Rev. Kirks posts before, that comment was dripping with sarcasm. I thought "Big red letters..." gave it away.

    Sorry you missed that he was siding with you. Enough clutter - please carry on.

    Actually, Belgianfreak, he did not say "Big red letters", but rather "Red Letters", which led ME to assume he were talking about the King James edition of the Bible...

    If so, would the Rev. care to explain his reasoning, which I am sure is ample?

    Or, if he had indeed heard of Kandinsky, and was indeed drenching his words in sarcasm. I'd have my doubts, but I'm sure he will dispel them.

    A little hasty, perhaps, Red? Why not wait and see what Rev.X. has to say for himself?
