So, what was my reaction to learning about Piet? (Please refer to yesterday's post on Piet Mondrian) I wanted to learn more not only about him, but how he created his Compositions. So, I tried it myself.
First, I did a duplicate of one of his originals. Then, I added my own spin on the classic. As with every piece of art, there are some symbolic meanings behind them. For this piece, I'll leave the discovery of those meanings up to you...
"Everything in his life was reasoned or calculated. He was a compulsive neurotic and could never bear to see anything disordered or untidy. He seemed to suffer acutely, for instance, if a table had not been laid with perfect symmetry."
- Hannah Höch on Piet Mondrian, quoted by Edouard Roditi
