“What is certain, is that there is no escape for the non-figurative artist; he must stay within his field and march towards the consequence of his art. This consequence brings us, in a future perhaps remote, towards the end of art as a thing seperate of our…enviornment, which is, actually, the plastic reality. But this end is at the same tme a new beginning. Art will not only continue but will realize itself more and more. By the unification of architecture, sculpture and painting a new plastic reality will be created.”
-Piet Mondrian, as recorded in English by Helio Oiticica, journal entry, Christmas 1959.
