It is the first step of pure creation in art. Kazimir Malevich, From Cubism and Futurism to Suprematism: The New Realism in Painting Only with the disappearance of a habit of mind which sees in pictures little corners of nature, Madonnas and shameless Venuses, shall we witness a work of pure, living art. I have transformed myself in the zero of form and dragged myself out of the rubbish- filled pool of Academic art. I have destroyed the ring of the horizon and escaped from the circle of things, from the horizon-ring which confines the artist and the forms of nature.

His concept of Suprematism sought to develop a form of expression that moved as far as possible from the world of natural forms objectivity and subject matter in order to access "the supremacy of pure feeling" and spirituality. Early on, Malevich worked in a variety of styles, quickly assimilating Impressionist , Symbolist and Fauvist styles, and after a trip to Paris in , Cubism. Gradually simplifying his style, he forged his distinct voice with key works that explore pure geometric forms and their relationships to one another, set against minimal grounds. His Black Square , a black square on white, represented the most radically abstract painting yet seen and drew "an uncrossable line … between old art and new art"; Suprematist Composition: White on White , a barely differentiated off-white square superimposed on an off-white ground, would take his ideal of pure abstraction to its logical conclusion.
