“We do not look at art. Art looks at us.”
Necklace for Hilma
When I saw the Hilma Af Klint show at the Guggenheim Museum in 2019 I felt an immediate connection to her work. Without ever having seen her many drawings and paintings before that show i realized I had notebooks full of similar motifs and I use many of the same colors in the same combinations in my pallet. Then I learned we share the same birthday born 100 years apart. Based on sketches from my own sketchbooks, some dating back 20 years, I made a homage to my soul sister Hilma.
