When i first saw photos from these paintings, browsing the pages of Vogue-magazine while waiting for a train, i was instantly fascinated. Something in these unusual colors, in these abstract, yet organic shapes deeply impressed me, and so at home, i tried to find out more about the woman, who painted them.
"It's not every day that we are introduced to an unknown yet pioneering modern painter, but this is what's happened with the Swedish painter Hilma af Klint. A stipulation in af Klint’s will ensured that her work was not shown until well after her death. But now her work is taking the art world by storm: appearing in the Venice Biennale and now in a highly anticipated retrospective at the Hamburger Bahnhof. ArtSlant writer Parker Tilghman is convinced af Klint ultimately knew when the timing was right her visions would again resurface." Quoted from Art Slant
I hope that one day, i can see these canvases with my own eyes - to me they look simply magical!
Meanwhile, i'm making progress with my own paintings - will show you some of it soon. Have a lovely rest of the week flowers, let the sunshine in!
