Little over a century ago, Piet Mondrian made history with his painting Composition with Color Planes, which consisted exclusively of square and rectangle blocks devoid of any perspective. This was the culmination point of a process of abstraction that went from figure painting to pure forms. When I see graffiti covered up with simple rectangles of varying sizes, colors, and orientations, I can't help but think of them as street-art reincarnations of the spirit of Mondrian. Soon after, my brain begins to make additions of its own to this game of forms that enliven the streets of Chicago. This series is the result pursuing these impulses. I'd also like to think of these fleeting alterations of given sites as a discreet tip of the hat to what Christo and Jeanne-Claude do on an epic scale.
