'Geometric abstraction' is a school of abstract art which refuses to adopt the conventions of optical effects and visual distance. Pioneered in the early 20th century by Wassily Kandinsky and Piet Mondrian, it was the template which Cesar Paternosto adopted for his earlier works in the late 1950's. His initial approach was non-formal and rapidly evolved into a more representational and expressive style.
He mentioned many years later, that it was a performance of Anton Webern's music he had attended around 1957, which shaped the course of his next artistic development. Paternosto was fascinated by the use of silence in Webern's music. In his attempt to emulate the Austrian composer's use of silence, in contrast to the use of sound in his compositions, Paternosto decided to remove the centre of focus in his paintings from the representational to the peripheral. While the centre of the canvas was often left unadorned and barren, he accentuated the importance of the periphery of the frame of the painting instead.

What is geometric abstract art?

What is geometric abstract art?

This is one of the forms of abstract art that uses geometric forms placed into a non-illusionistic space (though not always) and then combined into non representational(non objective) compositions. From the experience and results of the many years of research in the area of art, artists have suggested that the process of geometric abstraction can be a solution to the modern problems where some artists have been rejecting illusionistic practices.
