I don’t do the daily prompts but I couldn’t pass this one by. I’ve been looking for an excuse to show this piece. It’s not been framed yet and the light wasn’t great but I think the image stands up well enough to be shown. I’ve long been a fan of both Piet Mondrian and Jackson Pollock and after many, many hours I think I may well have managed to get both their influences onto one canvas.
I’m not too sure if the loose Pollock can be imposed on the tight Mondrian but my eye tells me there is a certain harmony to be found in the unknown.
My good lady showed me a quote that’s attributed to Julian Lennon. It makes perfect sense… when you’ve spent many hours wondering about the outcome of the piece you’re working on. Sometimes I think writing is a breeze when compared to birthing a bit of unique, experimental art!
“When you buy something from an artist you buy more than an object. You’re buying hundreds of hours of errors and experimentation. You’re buying years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You’re not buying just one thing, you’re buying a piece of a heart, a piece of a soul… a small piece of someone else’s life.”
