I'm becoming interested in rhythm in painting. Kandinsky, for example:



This painting is incredibly dynamic, polyrhythmic. The "steps" descending toward the northeast corner, for example. The rhythm is highly irregular, but not chaotic: I can't say any element is arhythmic, extraneous to the composition. The circles and triangles provide counterpoint to the repeated straight lines.

There are other highly rhythmic painters: Klee, Pollock... Not to be deaf to their music...
