Abstract Me

Kym copied Niobe and I am copying Kym. “A couple of days ago, our beloved niobe wrote an interesting post and invitation to participate, which I am going to shamelessly copy here because 1) she said everything I would have, 2) she writes better than I do, and 3) I’m too lazy to summarize in my own words, anyway:

Piet Mondrian is one of those iconic modern artists, with instantly recognizable compositions consisting of grids of dark lines enclosing fields of white and eye-catching primary colors. A complicated theoretical apparatus underlies these paintings, involving evolution towards higher planes of being and seeing and the quest for an art more real than reality itself. Mondrian took this all very seriously, so much so that when his friend and collaborator, Theo van Doesburg, introduced diagonal lines into his compositions, Mondrian reportedly never forgave him.

The picture above, however, isn’t actually a Mondrian. In fact, it’s supposed to be a picture of, well, me. And, oddly enough, I think it pretty much captures my physical and spiritual essence. If you’d like to create your very own personal modern art masterpiece, just go to this this site, answer a few basic questions about yourself and voilà! the portrait of you that Mondrian probably would have painted if only he’d had the chance.”

I’m not sure what it says about me but I like it. Head on over to Niobe’s and check out her post, all the other Mondrians, and add you link to the list if you create your own.

    Dani had the exact thought I did. As soon as your picture popped up, I thought that it was a perfect reflection of how wide open your loving heart is!
