Art theory and the right and left brain dichotomy


I think that the more painting relies on Art theory the less interesting it is. For example Chagall and Malevich (famous for the black square painting) were in the Russian Avent garde. Chagell however rejected Art theory while Malevich embraced it.


This was a fundamental dichotomy in Modernism between reductionist analytical classicism (Malevich) and a more romantic approach  (Chagall)

I think of it as left brain analytical Malevich.
