Af Klint, Kunz, and Martin

A friend forwarded this article from the NY Times. I am interested in Af Klint's work and especially in her processes.

The Modernist vs. the Mystics

A review of the "3 x Abstraction: New Methods of Drawing," at the Drawing Center (NY), by Ken Johnson.

"Academic art historians and critics still tend to discourage talking seriously about the spiritual in art. But considering how many artists continue to be motivated by spiritual urges, however the word spiritual is defined - this is something worth discussing. And this exhibition, problematic as it may be, offers an excellent occasion to do so. "
