Andrea Warren continues her explorative series of Women in Abstraction. Multidisciplinary Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama, has created not only paintings and drawings, but sculpture, collages, installations, performance art, film, ceramics, fashion design, novels, short stories and poetry. Her vast exploration of mediums over the last seven decades has earned her the name Queen of Infinity.
Andrea Warren begins her explorative series of Women in Painting, beginning with an artist who is thought to be a trailblazer of abstraction, Hilma af Klint.
"Although not widely known until well into the twenty-first century, Swedish artist Hilma af Klint is now also hailed as one of the first pioneers of abstract art. In fact, she is considered by some to be the mother of abstraction, as she began painting abstractly as early as 1906"
