Mondrian Nude 2

Highly Commended - Pinjarrah Art Award

The aerial view shows the artist looking at herself and has an almost ‘astral’ quality. The lines that intersect through the figure represent that we are not solid beings and that we are indeed spirit inhabiting a physical body. Piet Mondrian discussed the vertical line as being symbolic of the masculine principle, and the horizontal line as the feminine. So perhaps the aim of this painting is to describe the interaction of the feminine and masculine or even the interaction of physical and spiritual existence.
