Black Square

I really have no idea why I’ve always had Kandinsky and Malevich in my head as some kind of diametric opposition; or why I’ve worn my Kandinsky on my sleeve; or what I feared from my Malevich; means and ends, meaning’s end, paths to the abstract?

The first image is Kazimir Malevich’s Black Square, 1913. Oil on canvas, 41 3/4 x 41 7/8 inches. The second is
Kazimir Malevich, Plane in Rotation, called Black Circle, 1915. Oil on canvas, 31 1/2 x 31 1/2 inches.
