Louis Stern Fine Arts is pleased to present Transcendent, curated by Michael Duncan. Stemming from the achievements of Kandinsky, Malevich, Mondrian, and Hilma af Klint, ensuing generations of artists have desired to create spiritually illuminating abstract art. The Transcendental Painting Group of the 1930s (TPG) – surveyed in the traveling exhibition Another World: The Transcendental Painting Group (opening at Los Angeles County Museum of Art on December 16) – was dedicated to the creation and promotion of art that carried painting beyond the appearance of the physical world, utilizing the rich symbolic connotations of geometry and form.

The artists of this exhibition continued that pursuit in various ways and includes works from Eric Beltz, Sharon Ellis, Nancy Evans, Kymber Holt, Laura Lasworth, Stephen Mueller, Lee Mullican, Khang Nguyen, Mary Anna Pomonis, Frederick Wight, and Tom Wudl.
