“For the mind in creation is as a fading coal, which some invisible influence, like an inconstant wind, awakens to transitory brightness” – Percy Bysshe Shelley

Mondrian painting

Composition with large red plane, yellow, black grey and blue. – Piet Mondrian

Flatness is the compositional focus of my painting. While working on it, I kept thinking about Mondrian’s grid-based works and his “primary” colours. I found the image above today (April 2015) but I couldn’t remember if I had seen it before. It makes me wonder about the influence of subconscious memory.

“And there’s no exit
in any direction
‘Cept the one that
you can’t see with your eyes

And the cards are
no good that you’re holding
Unless they’re
from another world

I’d already
gone the distance

Was just think-in
of a series of dreams”

Bob Dylan (Series of Dreams)

“And I have felt a presence that disturbs me with the joy of elevated thoughts; a sense sublime of something far more deeply interfused, whose dwelling is the light of setting suns…” – Wordsworth

“Things of a day!
What are we, and what are We not?
A dream about a shadow is man:
yet, when some god-given splendour falls, a glory of light comes over him and his life is sweet.” – Pindar

“Within its deep infinity I saw ingathered, and bound by love in one volume, the scattered leaves of all the universe.” – Dante
