Julia Morrisroe is a painter and associate professor at University of Florida. Looking at Painting began as a way to share my commitment to look and occasionally write about a wide variety of painting, contemporary and historical. In particular I'm looking at this as public commonplace book, a long term project to explore what I mean when I say 'thats a painting'.

I saw Hilma af Klint's work for the first time at the 2013 Venice Biennial along with a number of artists working outside the traditional canon. Serpentine Galleries exhibition "Painting the Unseen" provides a larger view of the late Swedish painters investigations into nature and the spiritual world. Klint stipulated that her work couldn't be seen until 20 years after her death, it took until the mid 1980's for the first exhibition in LA and we're still learning about her significant contributions to the modernist tradition.
