Modern Art and hallucinations

Wassily Kandinsky, VII, 1913

This montage may explain how the brain gets its fix optically from patterns and colours. It may give clues to the hidden mystery behind why some modern art paintings have a hallucinating effect. The patterns register a psychedelic experience which triggers the mind and in turn
injects a pleasurable and palpable feeling. The bases of these dreamlike motifs or kinetic geometric shapes may be induced by the artist being sedated with a hallucinogenic substance. In all, the results were paintings that marked the age of abstraction.
