Phenomena of “Black Square” painting

A picture is worth ten thousand words – Chinese proverb

"Black Square", Kazimir Malevich, 1913

Malevich proclaimed his work as the “zero” of painting, that there was nothing that the painting presented, no positioning, no certain conventional imaging. A “meta painting” – a painting that has no opposite in representational painting. While representational painting must deal with particular conceptions, “zero-painting”, or “not-painting”, or “meta painting” is a generalization of the universe.
