As you may have guessed, the "neo-plastic" works of Piet Mondrian were the inspiration for this site's design. Much of the look of the site was suggested by the way Mondrian did some of his paintings in 'series' - groups of paintings with similar backgrounds, but different placements of colored planes and/or black, space-breaking lines.
Mondrian's paintings are far more complex when viewed in the original than any reproduction or simulation. Details come out that way that are effaced by process-color printing, like the subtle variations in white and gray tones, and the brushstroke work in the planes of solid color.
Plus, I just love his stuff. *grin*
