Mondrian Inspired

How exactly, or when it happened? I’m not quiet sure, but what I know is that I fell in love with Mondrian art at some point in my life. His abstract expression of nature is so fascinating to me. While drawing on my app, I came up with this picture. Though it isn’t perfect, I love it all the same.

“I construct lines and color combinations on a flat surface, in order to express general beauty with the 
utmost awareness. Nature (or, that which I see) inspires me, puts me, as with any painter, in an emotional state so that an urge comes about to make something, but I want to come as close as possible to the truth and abstract everything from that, until I reach the foundation (still just an external foundation!) of things… I believe it is possible that, through horizontal and vertical lines constructed with awareness, but not with calculation, led by high intuition, and brought to harmony and rhythm, these basic forms of beauty, supplemented if necessary by other direct lines or curves, can become a work of art, as strong as it is true.” –– Piet Mondrian
