During 24-26 November 2023, Hillerström herself got the opportunity to show her art in Brussels, Belgium after a personal invitation from gallerist Mickaella Himmelström, The Swedish Art Gallery in Malmö.
In 2024, the trip also goes to New York, Monaco and Paris.
"I am so incredibly happy to have this opportunity and for the wonderful reception I have received. The message I want to convey through my art can now continue." /Elaine
One of Sweden's and internationally most established art critics Stig Åke Stålnacke, a member of AICA/International Art Critique Association, has assessed Hillerström's art and given his opinion.
Now the Strong Women exhibition has ended and work has begun on the upcoming Strong Men exhibition. The new exhibition will be somewhat different than for Strong Women. Theme and power animal are the same. Even men are involved in things that often no one talks about. There is a kind of shame in admitting as a man that you have experienced something that can perhaps be interpreted as weakness - often in the treatment of other men. The demands or standards placed on both women and men are sometimes completely unreasonable. We are all human, need to see each other as such and that we all live together on this planet. Without one or the other, nothing can exist. We need each other, in a good way, where love and care reign in harmony. The men who are in this sequel to Strong Women want to change our way of thinking, talk openly about what they have been through and break the often unreasonable norms that prevail and start talking more openly about those questions and issues. Once and for all! More information about the exhibition will come in the spring of 2024.
On December 2, the doors were opened with an opening vernissage with Elaine Hillerström in her own studio in Västerås. In consideration of visiting guests and the works, not all images are posted.
You are warmly welcome to contemplate this special exhibition until the end of January 2024.
This new exhibition we meet the primal power and elements of nature with all its splendor through Elaine's special way of painting. Once again, food for thought is created that is guaranteed to grab hold of the viewer where you get to be part of a very special external and internal journey.
