Samples 2015: Week 2, Mondrian

White felt applied to black using embellisher. French knots in hand dyed red perle thread.

Source picture

“Abstract art: from the radical to the everyday. Mondrian’s bold grids, Malevich’s Black Square, Jenny Holzer’s top secret redacted government documents ... a new exhibition celebrates the point and edge of 100 years of abstraction.”

Piet Mondrian’s Composition with Yellow, Blue and Red (1937).

Sample design
Again I had to think twice and not attempt to imitate the source picture! So I took a small section at an angle, and made it fuzzy and textural.
