The Mondrian madness that artist Piet Mondrian
You can easily have your very own Mondrian installation on a door panel or a glass partition to divide a large room into smaller private spaces. All you need is a glazier from where to buy your glass and have it cut in the rectangles that you require.
Pick solid colours; design your panel to suit the surroundings
Either pick the Mondrian painting that appeals to you the most. Or simply adapt the style in your own way, to match the decor of your own home. Let your imagination go wild. You can have a lot of fun with the entire project and express your unique self.
Backpainted glass comes in unlimited shades - rich colours that are deep and bold; light pastel shades that have a soothing appearance; bright, clean colours for a fresh look or deeper tones for warmth. You can use panels of any colour of your choice for your design.
But if you want it to use the authentic shades of Mondrian art, then stick to primary colours like he did. Use solid blocks of reds, yellows, blues, blacks and whites in any arrangement you find pleasing to the eye. For the last few months of his life, Mondrian had bits of coloured paper on his wall that he rearranged from time to time to create installations that have been preserved in photographs and exhibited as the 'Wall Works'. You can experiment with how the rectangles of colour will be placed as well.
The options of where you can fit the installation are endless. A brightly coloured wall will fit in aptly in a kids' room. It can work as panelling for the wall in a niche corner of your living room, to enhance the minimalist look in the rest of the room. You can have a glass door with bright blocks of colour that intensify when light shines in. There are unlimited choices for what you can do with the glass.
Put it all together
You can either have the glazier cut panels of coloured glass into small rectangles and then place them in your wooden door frame. Or you can hand them the design and they will paint a single glass panel for you in the shades or designs that you want. You can even have a modular wall with coloured panels.
When you have created your design and planned the layout, you are ready to buy the glass. Farnham has many glaziers and glass contractors that can custom paint, cut and fit your glass for you.
