Ah, that strange word “Bonsai” …

The word “bonsai” is translated from Japanese, literally means – (sai) – plant, (bon) – in a low container. Many consider the birthplace of bonsai Japan, and this, a very common opinion is erroneous. In fact, this art appeared in ancient China, about 2 thousand years ago. There is no exact data on when the “bonsai” was born. The first documentary references about him are wall paintings in the tomb of Emperor Chang Hua of the Tang Dynasty (706). It depicts courtiers holding bonsai.

Suprematism

Suprematism is the direction of non-objective art, invented by KS Malevich. Russian and Western European researchers often derive it from the French word supreme, while the term is actually derived from the French word supre mati (superiority, primacy) or even from the Polish suprémacja, which has the same meaning. According to Malevich’s own explanation, “the word suprematism means primacy (that is, the primacy) of the color problem.”

The impulse for the birth of Suprematism was given by the cubofuturistic period in the artist’s work, the most important category of which was alogism. It is alogism that allowed to mate diverse spheres of life, freely operate with categories of space and time, gave priority to intuition in the process of creativity, because from Malevich’s point of view, the masters who preferred reason remained chained to the real world forms, “did not go beyond zero”.
