Hilma af Klint

1862 - 1944 (SWEDEN)

AF KLINT WAS A TRAINED ARTIST FOR WHOM THEOSOPHICAL ENLIGHTENMENT LED TO A DISCIPLINED VISUAL INVESTIGATION OF PSYCHICAL ABSTRACTION. AT HER REQUEST, HER SEVERAL THOUSANDS OF DRAWINGS AND PAINTINGS WERE KEPT SECRET, BOTH DURING HER LIFETIME AND POSTHUMOUSLY. THE DEPTH AND BREADTH OF AF KILNT’S PRODUCTION, NOTABLY HER MONUMENTAL SERIES, PAINTINGS FOR THE TEMPLE, EVIDENCES A RADICAL AESTHETIC FAR AHEAD OF THE MAINSTREAM AND INSPIRED ENTIRELY BY THE PARANORMAL REALMS. FOLLOWING GROUNDBREAKING SOLO EXHIBITIONS AT THE MODERNA MUSEET (2013), SERPENTINE GALLERIES (2016) AND GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM (2018), THE FULL SIGNIFICANCE OF THIS ARTIST WAS REALISED AND SHE IS NOW RECOGNISED AS A PIONEER OF 20TH CENTURY SPIRITUAL ABSTRACTION.
