“I wish to approach truth as closely as is possible, and therefore I abstract everything until I arrive at the fundamental quality of objects.”

School on Wheel’s Wednesday MArth students expressing Piet’s Mondrian’s ideas of nature. 

They worked in groups of two, each painting sections with a desired primary color. 

They weren’t able to express what they were painting but Hayden had a great observation. White is not an absence of color but a friend to carry the other colors along. Hmmm?

What do you see in their pieces of art?

  1. Not much, I must admit. I’m supposed to be an art student of sorts, and I try, but I wonder about pieces of art that require words along with them in order to make any sense of them at all – and then I think – what’s wrong with having words next to pieces of art?

    • Im in that same mindset. I probably wouldn’t bother to look at Piet Mondrian’s work if I didn’t know the thoughts behind his art. I get simplistic but simplistic is relaxing, not necessarily a way to get me to think.
