This summer research project was focused on creating a new body of abstract artwork inspired by the thought-forms conceptualized through the Theosophy movement and its impact on abstract artists in the early 20th century. By exploring the works of Hilma af Klint and Wassily Kandinsky, I gained a deep appreciation for the role spirituality can play in art. I also explored the significance of color theories and applied them to my work. The artwork I created focuses on the interaction of color and form and movement within 2-dimensional space through the mediums of screen printing and hand marbling.
