World renowned photographer Andy Barter’s strictly structural still life photographs are full of vivid colors, geometric shapes and gravity-defying props.

Barter’s photographs are part of the 'Mondrian Collection,' and were no doubt inspired by the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian. Mondrian was the co-founder of the De Stijl Movment, a Dutch artistic movement that advocated for abstraction and restriction of essential forms and colors, as well as simplistic visual compositions. Piet Mondrian was also the originator of neo-plasticism, a movement devoted to the strictest of geometrically abstract paintings.

The simplistic geometric abstraction runs clearly throughout all of Andy Barter’s still life photographs. They depict simplistic representations of individual rooms, including what looks like a living room, an office space, a laundry room and Barter’s own fictional spaces.
