i love when art is simple, and about the thought, action and discovery more than just the execution, and this is why bas jan ader is one of my all time favorites. above you see him bring the theory of neoplasticism into his modern day… the belief that art should not be the reproduction of real objects, but the expression of the absolutes of life, and what is more important to discovery than the absolutes of life?
establishing in the 1910’s, the original neoplasticists were piet mondrian and theo van doesburg. they believed that the only absolutes of life were vertical and horizontal lines and the primary colors. to this end neoplasticists only used planar elements and the colors red, yellow, and blue. thank goodness this perspective evolved off of the canvas, and surely brought us conceptual art. by kl
