Meta

Art is not merely an imitation of the reality of nature, but in truth a metaphysical supplement to the reality of nature, placed alongside thereof for its conquest.
-Friedrich Nietzsche

The Black Square,Kazimir Malevich,1915

Malevich proclaimed his work as the “zero” of painting, that there was no-thing other that painting presented, no positioning, no certain conventional imaging. A meta painting – more – a painting that has no opposite in representational painting, no painting to its anti-painting. For representational painting must deal with particulars of sorts, whereas ‘not-painting’ is a general relation englobing the rest of the universe.
