Description of the picture:
Shadow of the Stars - Friedensreich Hundertwasser.
The painting "The Shadow of the Stars" is not the most typical in the work of Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Most often, the pictorial creativity of the architect and artist depicts houses, streets, buildings. Here we see the profile of a person. But if you take a closer look at the picture, you will immediately understand - and here the author did not depart from the favorite topic. On the face of a man, we see an uneven row of windows. The window, as an element, seems to pass through all the work of the master, with the main leitmotif.
At first glance, the picture is a vivid example of abstract creativity, but in fact each of his works has its own concept, although the meaning of the “coded” message is not always clear. Hundertwasser actually left no explanation for his artwork. We are compelled to draw all the clues from Hundertwasser's literary works, explaining the main theses of his style. The dominant style of the artist was transasavtomatism.
The artist claimed that some unknown force controls his hand that he feels from the outside. That's why Friedensreich compared painting with some kind of religious activity.
The painting "Shadow of the Stars" is very decorative. It seems that it is entirely woven from some wonderful motifs. Comparison of colors - yellow, green, blue, pink, makes the picture flicker. The master himself claimed that he could sit around his works in the dark for a long time in order to observe this twinkling, and it seemed to him how metamorphoses begin to occur with the same color — he begins to lighten, darken, then acquire depth.
It should be noted geometrical pattern Hundertwasser. Moreover, the geometry of the artist is also unusual - there is not a single perfectly smooth line, everything is approximately and nominally. All the elements seem to dance, obeying the unknown rhythm set by the master.
