But, watching the geometry of the sky has reminded me of one of my favorite 20th century painters (and one of my un-linked interests) Laszlo Moholy-Nagy. One of the least well-known modernists, his almost astringent abstract works are all about dynamism and balance. With just a few simple lines and shapes he evokes a profound sense of repose which is nonetheless filled with vital energy. Like the greatest artists of any era, he had an uncanny ability to intuit the fractals which underlie reality. His work is very intellectual, but makes not only thoughts but feelings concrete in the most direct way. This was, of course, one of the major goals of the Modern movement, but few of his contemporaries accomplished it with such elegance and precision. I'm sure Tom Wolfe hates him.
There is a Web site dedicated to his work at:
The site requires flash media, and the reproductions of the paintings are rather small, but it is the only presentation of his work that I have been able to find on the Web.
