quote
I construct lines and color combinations on a flat surface, in order to express general beauty with the utmost awareness. Nature (or, that which I see) inspires me, puts me, as with any painter, in an emotional state so that an urge comes about to make something, but I want to come as close as possible to the truth and abstract everything from that, until I reach the foundation (still just an external foundation) of things.
quote
Piet Mondrian
quote
I believe it is possible that, through horizontal and vertical lines constructed with awareness, but not with calculation, led by high intuition, and brought to harmony and rhythm, these basic forms of beauty, supplemented if necessary by other direct lines or curves, can become a work of art, as strong as it is true.

Piet Mondrian
quote
The position of the artist is humble. He is essentially a channel.
quote
Piet Mondrian
quote
To approach the spiritual in art, one will make as little use as possible of reality, because reality is opposed to the spiritual.
quote
Piet Mondrian
quote
The emotion of beauty is always obscured by the appearance of the object. Therefore the object must be eliminated from the picture.
