Modgy Suction Cup Vases start out flat and expand with water. With the added advantage of a suction cup, Modgy expandable and collapsible vases will adhere to any clean and flat surface in your home, office, hotel, car, RV or any other place you can think of. Think of a plain window in your bedroom, a lifeless file cabinet in your office, an unattractive mirror in your living room or an old tiled wall in your kitchen. The vibrant designs and attractive colors are sure to make any space worth looking at twice. Add in a few floral stems or cuttings from your garden to add to the aura.
Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) was a visionary Swedish artist and spiritualist. Graduating with honors from Stockholm’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts, she earned a living through her landscapes and other conventionally themed paintings.
However, behind the scenes, she was creating a radically different body of work fueled by her passionate interest in spiritualism and theosophy. Acknowledged as the first abstract artist, she began painting these vivid, groundbreaking works in 1906, years before her contemporaries Kandinsky, Mondrian, and Malevich began exploring nonrepresentational composition. Her paintings were kept private in her lifetime, and she stipulated they could not be exhibited until 20 years after her death.
Today Hilma af Klint is being rediscovered through recent museum exhibitions around the world. Our vase features Youth, one of her paintings from The Ten Largest (1907), a bold, colorful series of enormous canvases illustrating the stages of life in her own symbolic shorthand of exuberant shapes and forms.
