I was in London during the weekend attending a fab party. We stayed close to Hyde Park, very convenient since the current exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery are showing work by the Swedish artist Hilma af Klint. "Painting the unseen".

The exbition are showing her abstract work that are considered being the start of this art era. She wrote in her will that this line of her work should not be shown until after her death (she died in 1944). But it took until 1986 until this work was finally shown. Her amazing work are now being exhibited at the Swerpentine Gallery, Hyde Park, London until 15 May.

Hilma formed a group "De fem" (The Five) with fellow female artists and they were having "seances" to connect with the "other world". This serie of work is related to this group and her spiritual life.

Hilma was also very interested in the organic world and its forms - and opposites. Here in black and white. I was dressed accordingly!

The abstract and geometrical...

Her choice of colour combinations would have worked perfectly in the world of fashion and interiors today. This colour scheme is very much what is predicted for this spring and summer.

She also researched the classic circle in basic black and white. This is early 1900:s! This exhibition is a must! Do not miss it. It is free, in a good spot and the size of the exhibition is very managable!

Finish off by having lunch or just a coffee at the "Magazine" bar and restaurnat designed by the late Zaha Hadid (sadly to young and very recent death), next door!
