Inspired by Hilma af Klint

When looking at the paintings of Swedish artist Hilma af Klint, currently residing at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the power of her vision is unmistakeable. The composition of vivid shapes and symbols depicted abstract, spiritual concepts and philosophies into a physical form. In this way, viewers were encouraged to consider and reflect upon the visual manifestation Hilma af Klint's work presented. This curation celebrates the artist and the influence her work had on others. Here you can find a full-bodied collection of large, colourful and symbolic abstracts inspired by spiritualism, science and the natural world.
