“By turning from the surface, one comes closer to the inner laws of matter, which are also the laws of the Spirit.” – Piet Mondrian
When things get too stressful or we feel overwhelmed with everything that’s going on around us, a common piece of advice we get is to cut out all the unnecessary stuff and strip down to the bare essentials. This process takes us to the core of our lives, and gives us a renewed look at our priorities. And that is exactly the spirit with which Dutch artist Piet Mondrian painted his artwork that consisted basically of lines and primary colors.
But Mondrian didn’t always paint like this. He started out painting in a more natural form, but his introduction to other works of modern art, particularly Cubism, transformed his outlook. He began to reduce everything he saw to the very basics and created compositions that used horizontal and vertical lines along with colored squares. Now, in a world filled with distraction, we can imagine how hard it is to look at something like that! But you can, with these awesome Piet Mondrian’s projects for kids.
