About Mondrian Medium Desk Box - Neutral Colors

This beautiful and elegant Mondrian Medium Desk Box made in wood lacquered in a resin layer is part of Pacific Connection's tribute to the 20th-century Dutch artist Piet Mondrian; displaying a pattern and color-scheme inspired in Mondrian's work Composition in Neutral colors. Each layer is individually hand-polished taking several days, to create the unique, deep, rich finish which is impervious to heat and alcohol. This oil painting consists of geometric figures, in particular variations of squares and rectangles. The painting was born from the ‘De Stijl’ movement, one of the major modern movements focused on Neo-Plasticism and co-founded by Mondrian. The horizontal lines signify a sense of rest and calm, while the vertical lines communicate a sense of height. Working together as an overall piece, the lines create a sense of stability and solidarity. Piet Mondrian was attempting to portray this sense of stability through his paintings and evoke feelings of a utopian society rather than face the instability of the world in its current state. In his career and in his life Mondrian went through different phases. He started with classic landscape painting with a realist style and refined portraits with numerous details. Then in the search of his own style and true expression he was enlightened by simplicity. He re-found himself in a painting style based on essential shapes and basic colors stripping away artistic compositions from unnecessary adornments. Mondrian Medium Desk Box - Neutral Colors:

    Mondrian was a Dutch painter, widely regarded as the founder of Modern art. The Bauhaus immediately referenced his work when discussing his lines, simplified colors and aesthetical appeal. His work inspired the Minimalist movement as well as far-reached impacts across all kinds of modern and post-modern culture. Mondrian greatly contributed to the De Stijl art movement. He created a non-representational form recognized by its white ground, topped with a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines and the three primary colors. One of his most famous compositions in this style is Composition II in Red, Blue, and Yellow. Mondrian believed that the composition of the most fundamental aspects of line and color was the total realization of true beauty. Painter’s work continues to have an immense impact on the development of modern art. Eventually, he influenced Art movements including the Bauhaus and Minimalism. He influenced the fashion designs of Yves Saint Laurent. He also inspired the design for the cover of The White Stripes 2000 album, De Stijl.
