Spiritual Dimensions in Abstract Art
August 11th, 2018, at 2 pm
Beginning in the late 1890’s, a new current of cultural interest in mysticism and spirituality inspired by the international influence of Theosophy, fused with the genesis of abstract painting. Pioneers such as Kandinsky, Kupka, Malevich, and Mondrian radically broke with even the most avant-garde developments of representational art in the attempt to depict deeper levels of reality, essences, and hidden truths. Meanwhile, Hilma af Klint, a relatively unknown Swedish artist and mystic working tirelessly in seclusion, produced over 1200 paintings, drawings, and extensive notebooks. By her own direction, this vast artistic outpouring was hidden away until 20 years after her death. When her works first began to be publicly exhibited in the 1980’s, they disclosed an astonishingly rich and captivating oeuvre that reveals af Klint as one of the remarkable visionaries and forerunners of this path-breaking period.
