Atom Series is based on a series of drawings of the same name by Hilma Af Klint from 1917.
In Af Klint’s Atom Series, the relationship between the smallest particles and the cosmos,
duality principles and different planes of existence are all explored. For this work Tee became
interested in the origins of abstract art and the endeavor to unite abstraction with mythical concepts and belief systems. She was directly inspired by Af Klint’s series and works by Kandinsky, but also began to research the secret language of diagrams in the Taoist philosophy.
