Listen to Your Art: Hilma af Klint by Zoe Spiliotis
Friday, September 24, 2021
Zoe Spiliotis will discuss the life and work of Swedish artist Hilma af Klint.
She was a Swedish artist and spiritualist. Her bold, colorful and imaginative non-objective paintings predate Kandinsky, Malevich, and Mondrian, who are still regarded as the pioneers of abstract 20th-century art. The resurgence of this secretive painter's body of work invites a reevaluation of modernism, its development, and the art historical timelines predominately shaped around men.
Zoe Spiliotis's abstract artwork is based on mathematical principles exploring the principles of repetition, symmetry, movement, and visual perception through geometric patterns. Her works reflect a recurrent theme in philosophy, theology, art, and mathematics. Zoe's work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in Italy, Austria, and Japan. She has also created public artworks and murals in New Mexico, Texas, and Pennsylvania.
