Line Composition, 2017

an homage to the Dutch Art Movement De Stijl

“2017 marked the 100th anniversary of the first edition of De Stijl magazine, published by Theo van Doesburg, Bart van der Leck and Piet Mondriaan. After 100 years of rich history, De Stijl is still a major influence on our lives. We see assumptions for sculpting, architecture and applied sciences everywhere around us. Piet Mondriaan’s quest for abstraction and the use of the primary colours has inspired many artist and architects worldwide: and in that very same manner Amber Ambrose Aurèle was inspired.She got the work towards representing pure abstraction and universality by reducing shape and colour to its essence. Just as with De Stijl this consists of black horizontal and vertical lines and squares in the primary colours red, yellow and blue and the non-colours black and white that overall bring forth a certain calm. This makes it Amber’s most graphic work, inspired by the masterpieces of Mondriaan and brings homage to the Dutch art movement De Stijl. In 2018, these shoes will be the base of the new collaboration between fashion designer Judith van Vliet and Amber Ambrose Aurèle.”
