A Mondrian Gone Bad

A Mondrian Gone Bad is my reaction to the formal structure of a subset of Piet Mondrian's works of art.

One of my favorite works by Piet Mondrian is Grey Tree which was painted in 1911 and is an example of Mondrian's early experimentation with cubism. However, his work later evolved into a non-representational form which he termed Neo-Plasticism. An example is Composition II in Red, Blue, and Yellow painted in 1930. This style of art consisted of a white ground upon which was painted a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines with blocks of color limited to the three primary colors.

In A Mondrian Gone Bad, I took Mondrian's compositional "rules" and created a piece in Mondrian's own style. I then "ruined" it by deforming the lines to create subtle figures and altering the color of some of the color blocks.

A slightly cropped, watermarked wallpaper of this print can be seen in the A Mondrian Gone Bad wallpaper.
