Primordial by Hilma af Klint, a Swedish artist and mystic whose paintings were amongst the first abstract art. A considerable body of her abstract work predates the first purely abstract compositions by Kandinsky. She belonged to a group called “The Five”, a circle of women who shared her belief in the importance of trying to make contact with the outer world. Her paintings, which sometimes resemble diagrams, were a visual representation of complex spiritual ideas.
