I realize much, if not most, of what I have made available as comment on this blog has about as much clarity as mud, or has the clarity of a thick pudding, still the old saying is, “it is all in the pudding.” This pretty much identifies what I see in my inquiry into this art that I am pursuing. It may be entirely dense, yet incremental as clarity has begun to demonstrate itself, I am convinced of the there there. Recently a friend of mine introduced me to Piet Mondrian in a way that was valuable. I knew Mondrian as an artist, but not as a history. My past few weeks have been an inquiry into that history. The primary component that aligns most with my art is found in the magazine De Stijl, or The Style, and I will begin to compose a more relevant identification in following posts. Hang on to your shorts fellow space cadets.
