"Life is a farce if a person does not serve truth." Hilma af Klint
Hearing that the Crown Princess of Sweden has trained to become a medical assistant so that she may volunteer in the fight of covid -19 in her country made me think of Swedish painter Hilma af Klint 1862 -1944. Specifically the feminine and bold No. 7, Adulthood 1907.
About the Artist from Wikipedia
Hilma af Klint was a Swedish artist and mystic whose paintings were among the first Western abstract art. A considerable body of her abstract work predates the first purely abstract compositions by Kandinsky. She belonged to a group called "The Five", a circle of women who shared her belief in the importance of trying to make contact with the so-called "High Masters"—often by way of séances. Her paintings, which sometimes resemble diagrams, were a visual representation of complex spiritual ideas.
About the piece from thearrtstory.com
No. 7 painting, of the The Ten Largest series of the Paintings for the Temple, is at once meditative like an ancient mandala (a geometric pattern of Buddhist and Hindu origin said to represent a microcosm of the whole universe), and dynamic like a changing piece of music. The large painting, over three meters in height and two meters wide, is composed of free-flowing organic forms of different sizes and colors (bright yellow, red, green, light blue, and white) set against a lilac background, punctuated by lines at once diagrammatic and scripted.
