Analytical art

Analytical art is an artistic method developed and justified by Pavel Filonov in theoretical works (“Canon and the Law”, 1912; “Paintings Made”, 1914; “Declaration of the World Prosperity”, 1923) and in his own painting.

Starting from cubism as a carrier of a rationalistic principle, Filonov contrasted him with the principle of organic growth (how a tree grows) of the artistic form and the “completeness” of paintings.

The principle of accomplishment is the main point of Analytical Art. The artist “builds” his picture of how nature “creates” from atoms “and molecules larger formations. Understanding that “in any object there are not two predicates, shape and color, but a whole world of visible and invisible phenomena, their emanations, reactions, inclusions, genesis, being, known or secret properties, which in turn sometimes have countless predicates,” Filonov was I am convinced that all this variety of properties can be plastically expressed in painting.

When creating a work, the artist must rely not only on the obvious, visible (“seeing eye”), but also on the invisible (“knowing gas”, capturing hidden processes) – the internal laws of the structure and functioning of the depicted object. The artist transforms his internal “vision” of an object or phenomenon into graphic-pictorial constructions based on the “law of the organic development of form” borrowed from nature (to imitate not the forms that it creates, but the methods by which it “acts”) and opposed to the “canon” (artificially constructed forms).

Having comprehended this law, the artist is able to “make” a certain picture, so organic that it has the potential for self-development, as it were, without the participation of the author himself (grows and develops like all living things in nature).

P. Filonov believed that the art created by his method is the art of the future, which will lead to the “World Flowering”, as it is based on the harmonious interaction of man and nature, on the number of scientific principles that address the intellect of the viewer and develop it (“to be factor in the evolution of intelligence ”).

Masters of Analytical Art: Pavel Filonov, Tatyana Glebova, Alisa Poret, Mikhail Tsibasov, Sofya Zaklinovskaya, Pavel Zaltsman, Pavel Kondratyev, Boris Gurvich, Nikolai Evgrafov, Vsevolod Sulimo-Samuillo, Yuri Khrzhanovsky.
