orphism.

i'm reflecting today on the bold yet free shapes and color palette combinations of early modern artist sonia delaunay...
the ways with which sonia smashed together pattern and line, all with daring amounts of paint, and with wild abandon. sonia delaunay was a jewish-french born artist, married to artist robert delaunay, both known for generating a new movement in art known as orphism, the utilization of strong colors and bold geometric shapes.

you can read more about sonia here and here, in this shared book. i could sit and stare at sonia's work a while. it all seems so simple but there are more complexities than meets the eye. enjoy!
