Brown on brown (after Malevich)

#00003057

Corners and inescapable places

About

In this work, artist Claret Sobe demonstrates her compositional skill by using elements within the picture frame to direct the viewer's attention to the main subject, the brown square.

Until recently, this work was widely interpreted as a contemporary response to the Suprematist composition White on White (1918) by Kazmir Malevich. 

However, the artist’s personal papers (discovered after her death) reveal the photo documents the corner behind the door where the cleaner repeatedly failed to vacuum.
