Frantisek Kupka (1871-1957) was one of Abstract Art Pioneers who like others in this artistic movement had spiritual ( occult and mystical not religious) tendencies. Here is a summary of his work for a memorial in his birthday Sep 23.
It’s been awhile I’ve been away. The reason can be guessed by the previous notes that I was on my thesis. Yap! After a two-year hard work, confusion, hard work, wondering and again hard work it finished.
It was a hard time but enjoyable. Maybe I can use the word “tragic” as Mondrian uses it in his writings explaining the spiritual states he relates to the creation processes of an art work. By the word “tragic” he refers to the idea of suffering during spiritual developments of the soul, carings and a kind of austerity, which is also enjoyable as it results enlightenment. So… Let me begin the sentence again…

After finishing the master of Arts and finishing a hard thesis, it feels like I have even more things to do now. Releasing the paper and having thoughts about continuing my education abroad are just two of them. The Spiritual in Art is a vast phenomena that although I am so eager to study that more it seems to be an endless path which makes it difficult for me to decide. Here I just mention some parts of the thesis that lit the path but also raised bigger questions for me.
What is that makes us feel miserable or happy? I know there are certain answers in different fields of science and human studies for it but what I mean goes beyond that, or even inverse, is about an everyday life satisfying answer.
