  PAINTING 1921-1923 РУ DE EN

In October 1920 the Puni couple arrived in Berlin, and in February 1921 a solo exhibition of Puni at Galerie Der Sturm took place.
In Berlin he continued to experiment in various directions.
Influenced by Ozenfant's ideas, Puni tries to work in the aesthetics of purism.
In search of his visual language for synthetic art, he combines different stylistic ideas - cubism and naturalism, figurative and objectless into a single whole ("Synthetic Musician", 1921).
In the direction of synthetic cubism Puni makes still lifes in gouache, stylistically close to the works of Marcoussis.
In the direction of constructive naturalism he creates a number of vertical still lifes with a palette, saw, bottle, frame, etc. Familiar objects are composed partly in a familiar, partly in an absurdist position. Straight lines predominate. Relatively bright colours of specific complex Punic mixtures; the colour is lively, fluttering.
His views on art Puni outlines in a number of articles and in the brochure "Modern Painting" (ed. Frenkel, Berlin, 1923).
Participation in exhibitions: 1921 - solo exhibition, 1922 - 1923 - three group exhibitions a year.
