Abstract 21 Series 3 ‘Lines’

This is the last comic in series 3 Abstracts. Again this is another experiment in jumbled panels, like the previous post Abstract 12c. Rather than a rigorous set of 2×3 panels.

Edit: sorry about the lateness of the post, there was a schedule error.

    This is amazing David – I love it. The panels become more and more like “windows” onto another world, another dimension. Like tears in the fabric of spacetime.

    This is something I thought of – I never used to like Mondrian paintings. But then I saw a photo of Mondrian in his studio and there were so many of his paintings I suddenly understood them – they were like windows onto a universe in which everything was comprised of straight black lines and blocks of colour. These “window” works remind me of this experience.

    Cheers Richard, I really like it as well. I think its a great comic to end the Series 3 Abstracts.
    Of course that makes total sense! The De Stijl movement was hugely influential in architecture both in terms of theory and aesthetics. The Rietveld Schröder House is considered a classic piece of Architecture. So much so according to Wikipedia its now a world Heritage site.

    see quote below

    Influence on architecture
    The Rietveld Schröder House—the only building realised completely according to the principles of De Stijl.

    The De Stijl influence on architecture remained considerable long after 1931; Mies van der Rohe was among the most important proponents of its ideas. Between 1923 and 1924, Rietveld designed the Rietveld Schröder House, the only building to have been created completely according to De Stijl principles. Examples of Stijl-influenced works by J.J.P. Oud can be found in Rotterdam (Café De Unie) and Hoek van Holland.

    During my degree as a project a group I was with had to make part of the interior of the Rietveld Schröder House.
