Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future at the Guggenheim, NYC

Regardless of whether it’s your love of art, color, history of groundbreaking women or the enticing mystery of the metaphysical, one can’t help but be inspired and captivated by the Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future exhibition at the Guggenheim in New York City.

According to the museum’s website, this is the first major solo exhibition of the Swedish artist and spiritualist’s work and focuses on the years 1906 through 1920, when she strayed from painting flowers and landscapes and moved towards radically abstract interpretations of the universe. Many of the works shown are composed of sensual and harmonious color palettes, geometric shapes and mysterious symbols that are rooted in otherworldly messages delivered to af Klint by occult or spiritual means through her actions as a medium.

What’s even more intriguing is that she wrote specific instructions to keep these works out of the public eye until 20 years after her death, which was in 1944. It seems she felt the world was not yet ready to understand the messages. Whether we now understand af Klint’s mystical spirit world remains to be seen, but we do know the paintings are stunning to behold.

Do your soul a favor and get to this exhibit before it closes on April 23rd .
