Piet Mondrian

The position of the artist if humble. He is essentially a channel.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The position of the artist is humble. He is essentially a channel.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I hate everything approaching temperamental inspiration,'sacred fire'and all those attributes of genius which serve only as cloaks for untidy minds.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Why should art continue to follow nature when every other field has left nature behind?More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The unconscious in us warns us that in art we have to followoneparticular path. And if wefollow it, it isnotthe sign of anunconscious act.On the contrary, it showsthat there is in our ordinary consciousness a greater awareness of our unconsciousness.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Art on the contrary sought this harmony in practice (of art itself). More and more in its creations it has given inwardness to that what surrounds us in nature, until, in Neo-Plasticism, nature is no longer dominant. This achievement of balance may prepare the way for the fulfilment of man and signal the end of (what we call) art. (1921/23More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The more basic the color, the more inward, the more pure.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Colored planes, by their position and size as well as by their value, express only relationships, not forms.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Intellect confuses intuition.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All painting - the painting of the past as well as of the present - shows us that its essential plastic means were only line and color.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The truly modern artist is aware of abstraction in an emotion of beauty.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I think you too recognize the important relationship between philosophy and art, and it is just this relationship that most painters deny. The great masters do grasp it, unconsciously; but I believe that a painter's conscious spiritual knowledge will have a much greater influence upon his art, and that it would be due only to a weakness in him, or lack of genius, should this spiritual knowledge be harmful to his art...More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The only problem in art is to achieve a balance between subjective and objective.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I, too, find the flower beautiful in its outward appearance. But a deeper beauty lies concealed within.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In past times when one lived in contact with nature, abstraction was easy; it was done unconsciously. Now in our denaturalized age abstraction becomes an effort.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Curves are so emotional.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The purer the artist's 'mirror' is, the more true reality reflects in it. Overseeing the historical culture of art, we must conclude that the mirror only slowly is purified. Time producing this purifying shows a gradual, more constant and objective image of reality.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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...More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Reality manifests itself as constant and objective - independent of us, but as changeable in space and time. Consequently, its reflection in us contains both properties. Mixed up in our mind, these properties are confused and we do not have a proper image of reality.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
abstract art is not the creation of another reality but the true vision of reality.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I wish to approach truth as closely as is possible, and therefore I abstract everything until I arrive at the fundamental quality of objects.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The emotion of beauty is always obscured by the appearance of the object. Therefore, the object must be eliminated from the picture.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To approach the spiritual in art, one will make as little use as possible of reality, because reality is opposed to the spiritual.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't want pictures, I want to find things out.More Piet Mondrian [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
