Described fittingly as ‘miraculous,’ the works of Hilma af Klint are “out of time and out of place.” Contemporary beyond their time, her pieces are commonly mistaken as recent, but they were painted in the 1800's.
Hilma requested her works remain hidden for two decades because she felt the people of her time weren’t ready for it and she was right. When her family revealed her works to the public in the 1960's, they didn't receive the acclaim they deserved. Today, Hilma is now rightly recognised as one of the world’s first abstract painters. Inspired by her meetings with a female occult group made up of four friends in the 1860’s, these communions liberated her practice beyond conventional landscapes, to a bold and colourful exploration of mysticism and spiritualism.
Hilma af Klint: The Secret Paintings, reveals the works the world wasn’t ready for until now.
