O’ Dishcloth Colour of the Sun
by Steven McCabe
A classic Piet Mondrian composition collaged incorporating a photograph of my sister’s heroic torn dishcloth.
A ceiling light reflected on the floor, beside the dishcloth, resembling the flame of an oil lamp.
A dyed cotton weave delivering flame to Mondrian’s composition.
Mondrian’s static & inorganic (yet dynamic) composition collaged with incongruity, warmth & organic emotion.
Energy (like Van Gogh’s sunflowers) frayed & twisted contrasting with Mondrian’s geometric formula.
