Method in the Mondrian

Stephen Knowles

Artist's Description

This is my attempt at a Piet Mondrian, after being inspired by an episode of Hustle on the BBC.

Piet Mondrian is recognized as the purest and most methodical of the early abstractionists. He radically simplified the elements of his artwork in an effort to reflect what he believed to be the order underlying the visible world. In his ground breaking paintings of the 1920s, Mondrian strictly limited his color palette to black, white, and the three primary colors: red, yellow, and blue. Mondrian’s use of asymmetrical balance and a simplified pictorial vocabulary were crucial in the development of modern art. His iconic abstract works remain influential in design and familiar in popular culture. This transcript was sourced from www.theartstory.org
