About the artwork
To help support our organisation during this period, we have released a special selection of previously sold out editions from the House of Voltaire archive. With exclusive works from a number of international artists, this is the final time that these editions will be available to purchase. Studio Voltaire is a registered arts and education charity with all sales directly supporting our exhibition, learning and studio programmes.
In this limited edition screen print, New York–based artist Cory Arcangel has reproduced a page torn from an art history book, featuring one of Piet Mondrian’s famed 'Lozenge' paintings. In the Lozenge painting series, Mondrian tilted his square canvases at a 45-degree angle so that they hung in a diamond shape. In creating this edition, Arcangel has tilted the torn page depicting the Mondrian painting back by 45 degrees, allowing the work to appear square again.
