Olga Vladimirovna Rozanova is an avant-garde artist who has a passion for color. Her work, entitled "The Green Stripe", brought the artist stunning success and novelty in painting. The painting was painted in oil in 1917 in two original versions, shortly before the sudden death of the artist. The picture refers to the course of supermatism, where color is the main expressive means and purpose of the work.
On a white background, a strip of green shades grows from the bottom of the canvas in the center. The artist excludes the dilemma “part - whole”, “form-background”. There are no boundaries of form, which can be attributed to pointlessness, as a symbol of radical freedom. In the picture, Olga Rozanova conveys the color as it is, independent of nothing and no one. In the work there are no superior facts other than color. The “green stripe”, like infinity, pours onto the canvas and exudes an elusive color glow. Due to the fact that transparent light glaze was superimposed on the canvas primed with whitewash, it seems that a colored light beam is transmitted to the canvas. The avant-gardist sought exactly this effect.
There are many interpretations of this canvas. Many personify a strip with upright Russia, which stands out against a faceless plane.
In its significance, the Green Strip is comparable to Malevich's Black Square, but there is a significant difference between the works. The difference is that Malevich’s work is based on form, and Olga Vladimirovna’s work is based on color.
The image of color, as if separated from the subject and from the plane. Rozanova reflected the green color, like musical harmonies and dissonances. A continuous change in the green hue form a variety of unknown sensations.
