About Mondrian Neutral Mini Box (Cotton Swabs)
This elegant Mondrian Neutral mini box (ideal for storing Q-Tips) lacquered in resin by Pacific Connections displays a pattern inspired in the 20th-century Dutch artist Piet Mondrian’s work “Composition with Red, Blue, and Yellow” (1930). 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 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. 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. Mondrian’s quest to represent a universal and essential beauty later influenced the development of the 1960s American artistic movement, Minimalism.
