Whether you’re a fan of his works and compositions that juxtapose primary colors with fundamental geometric forms–or you’re not–there’s no denying the fact that Piet Mondrian has had an indelible impact on the world of modern art. Despite the fact he kicked the bucket almost eight decades ago, his works continues to impress and inspire like the work that is the Schiphol Airport Clock you see here. As they describe it, “In 2016, Baas created the Schiphol clock in which a working man can be seen painting the time minute by minute. The clock is installed in the international terminal of the Amsterdam airport, one of the last things travellers see before departing the Netherlands. The worker’s blue overalls, yellow rag and red bucket pay homage to the famous Dutch artist, Mondrian.” It’s an interesting, intriguing and otherworldly piece we hope stays on display forever–even if we don’t have the opportunity to see it any time soon.
