Genevieve Guadalupe – Artist style #6

The union, in the style of Hilma af Klint.

For my last project I wanted to focus on Hilma’s spirituality and spiritism. Her work was inspired by her beliefs, nature and her spiritism seances. Union occupies the main presence in her paintings. Union of the feminine and masculine, not only between man and woman but also the duality inside of us as individuals, our masculine and feminine side, the blue and the yellow, the sun and the moon. That ever present union that connects us with the divine, the expansion of the self outwards, the transformation into Love.

Materials and technique: cotton fabric, cotton batting, poly thread, embroidery floss, printmaking ink. Monotype printed on cotton, machine quilted, hand embroidered.


  1. A very fitting last piece in your series. I love this interpretation, so simple but full of meaning. The contrast between the machine and hand stitch works really well.

  2. Excellent interpretation and realization of Hilma af Klint’s philosophy. Artist, I didn’t know and I hope to see her exhibition at the Tate Modern in London next year. Bravo, I love it!
