I have long admired the paintings of Mondrian. They are so refreshingly direct and clean in spirit.  He was a leading member of the modern Dutch artistic movement, De Stijl, and one of the first artists to embrace total abstraction.  He thought paintings should be flat, emphasizing primary colors and vertical and horizontal.  I think he might be rather surprised to see his image as part of a painting emphasizing thee dimensional representation.  Would he be amused?  Probably not.  This painting is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Tom

Thomas Miller turns his canvas into a time machine, bridging past and present. Inspired by still life and portrait paintings of the Renaissance and Baroque periods, Thomas mixes in touches of Modern Art. As time and technology march forward, Thomas sees art as the enduring expression of our shared human experience. Ever the history buff, Thomas enjoys referencing the great artists in his paintings - reinventing classic pieces by Vermeer or Ingres. Fun fact: Thomas spent 15 years traveling the world with the Mermaid Theatre as a designer and performer.
