Hilma af Klint – a pioneer in abstract painting
Hilma af Klint is a unique artist in that she was a pioneer in developing an abstract visual language.Wassily Kandinsky andPiet Mondrianwhich otherwise would have introduced theabstract painting. However, her influence on the development of art has been modest, as she wrote in her will that her paintings were not to be shown until 40 years after her death (when the world was ripe). The art world first saw her paintings at a collective exhibition in Los Angeles in 1986. But it was not until her exhibition at Moderna Museet in 2013 that she had her big international breakthrough;With her powerful language of colour and form, infused with esoteric symbolism and Christian mysticism, she has gained worldwide acclaim and her paintings have been exhibited in some of the most prestigious museums in the world, such as the Guggenheim, MoMA, Tate Modern, Centre Pompidou and the Moderna Museet.
Strong emotions and esoteric themes;
The basic theme of Hilma af Klint's art is to make visible the invisible world. af Klint was strongly influenced by the great spiritualistic movements of the time, such as theosophy and anthroposophy, and used her painting as a means of expressing ideas about spiritual development and higher forms of consciousness. The messages to the Temple came about through her role as a medium, receiving messages from spirits which later became forms, compositions and phrases;
In the suite of images The Ten Greatest, she deals with themes such as life and its various stages:childrenålder,youth, the manna and the earth.The Swan is another recurring motif in her career. At Posterton we have prints and posters featuring some of Hilma af Klint's most beloved works;
