The Las Cruces Museum of Art hosts Zoe Spiliotis discussing the life and work of Swedish artist Hilma af Klint, via Zoom, Friday, September 17, 1:30 p.m. Hilma af Klint was a Swedish artist and spiritualist who, by 1906, was creating radically abstract paintings unlike anything seen before. 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. Zoe Spiliotis is currently an Assistant Professor at El Paso Community College, in El Paso, Texas. Her abstract artwork is based on mathematical principles exploring the principles of repetition, symmetry, movement, and visual perception through geometric patterns.
