Van Lieshout VI was inspired by Mondrian's "Devotion" and "Evening: The Red Tree". The first work can be seen at the Mondrian House (Amersfoort, Netherlands), until march 8th 2020. In both cases she took Mondrian's subject and composition as a starting point to give it its own, modern interpretation.
Van Lieshout VI was struck by the colours of Mondrian's "Devotion" (1908). She went in search of a model that was looking just the same as Mondriaan's girl. She took pictures of her in the same pose, depicted in profile. After that she used the same colors for a starting point when editing her image, and added a nod to pointilism/luminism. At Van Lieshout VI however, the flower in the painting has been replaced by a jellyfish and the devout innocence of the Mondrian girl has been translated into the child of today: less ignorant. It's a preoccupied young lady, fascinated by an earthly world full of mystery and threats.
