Thinking about the Black Square

Kazimir Malevich 1913/15

I don’t understand the seeking of a void
The void will come all too soon
I need a narrative, substance not a void
Meditation is a struggle
I can’t do it
Kazimir Malevich’s Black Square ‘0.10’
I can understand a little
The rejection of rational thought
Chaos brings a void
I would not look closely
Once seen I would not need to see it again
Ad Reinhardt’s Abstract Painting No. 5 1962
I don’t get it?
Abstract works are created on a different spectrum to me
Give me poetry and Lyrics music with a narrative
A hook into the real world
Jazz for instance
I don’t get it?
It does nothing for me it’s just a noise
We all look and feel things differently
Colour, texture, light and shade
Loss and sorrow
Love and being loved
A sexual experience just for the experience
With someone who did not want me
I don’t get it?
I need context and depth
The void is not enough for me
I guess I just need to know why
