Composition VII

This piece, entitled Composition VII,  was created in 1913 by Wassily Kandinsky. This piece caught my eye mainly because of the many vivid colors that seem to just jump right off the page. I like Kandinsky's use of use of both straight and curved lines to create what appears to be both organic and geometric shapes. In this piece Kandinsky layered his shapes, with some overlapping others. It appears that most of the darker colors are around the edges and in the back, while the brighter colors draw our attention to the middle. This piece seems similar to our current project where we are using different shapes to create an abstract piece.
