Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) was a pioneer of the abstract.

Like Albert Einstein, he believed in relativity. Everything is expressed through relationship. Color exists only through other colors, dimension through other dimensions, and position through other positions that oppose them.

He knew the power of intuition. It’s an intelligence beyond the brain — one that feels. A conscious man transcends the individual and becomes one with the universal.

Mondrian saw artistry as a pathway to the spiritual. It is positivity. Though we undergo negativity and sympathize with it, artists draw from the burgeoning life around them.

Artists are channels, and I am an artist.
