(holy shet abstract 20th century russian art is satanic)
So basically all three genres talked about here so far (suprematism, cubo-futurism, and rayonism) are all very tightly-connected. They also take a sizable chip off of futurism. They all look so distinct from one another, but they are like brothers. It's the small details that betray this shared blood. Different sides of the same thoughts.
Rayonism's guiding philosophy is that objects are slow, chunky things but they give birth to light that shoots off forever. The value and focus should be put more on this light than on the object itself. The lesson it took from futurism is speed. Everything looks so fast, like a rocket taking off or a laser beam. Funny how neither of these technologies existed at the time. Rayonism is very crystalline in its geometry, it looks very pure. I like that. Pure speed, everything focused on light and progress and getting from point A to point B. A straight line is most efficient, and there is beauty in efficiency.
