While in NYC our family went to the Guggenheim Museum to see Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future. We love sharing art of all mediums with Mario and we were especially looking forward to this exhibit, since during her life time, af Klint kept her groundbreaking paintings largely private. She rarely exhibited her work and was convinced the world was not yet ready to understand her paintings and vision; af Klint insisted that much of the collection exhibited at the Guggenheim not be shown for twenty years after her death, ideally in a spiral temple, which uncannily is quite similar to the Guggenheim. The exhibit literally feels as though Hilma af Klint found a portal into the future - she began creating her radically abstract paintings in 1906 when she belonged to a group called "The Five", a circle of women who among other things often found inspiration in séances. Her art truly was ahead of its time - her paintings are abstract, bold, spiritual, geometric and as colorful as a rainbow. We more than loved the exhibit and experiencing Hlima af Klint’s groundbreaking paintings. Mario also loved exploring the cylindrical Guggenheim Museum and it’s spiral ramp - what an amazing day we had in NYC!
