Krause Creates “Familiar But Not Quite Right” Calendar for Washington Post

[ Posted: Jun 08, 2020 ]


Jon Krause perfectly captures the confusion and disorientation that quarantine brings with his “Calendar with Red, Yellow and Blue, 2020” for the Washington Post Sunday Magazine.

By tying together Piet Mondrian’s famous “Composition” and “Tableu” paintings with the idea of a calendar during times of a pandemic, it evokes the feeling of looking at, what Jon calls it, “something familiar, but not quite right”.

The piece was made with egg tempera and ink on panel. According to Jon, the added Letraset press type also provided some great texture when transferred onto the painted surface.
