Re-edit (12/10/17): O’Keeffe made me want to visit New Mexico, places like Albuquerque. Starry night with wild eyes.
The beauty of Georgia O’Keeffe comes from her succinct capture of the wonder and vastness of human aesthetic. New York, her love of nature, and the particular feminism (the symbolic blend of flower and vagina) in her arts create her artsy world.
O’Keeffe often paints in extremely simple yet famine strokes. This is the petal and stem of a white flower.
Cloud sea, the one that drives wondering imagination.
O’Keeffe spent many years in New York, before pulling away from its prior-Great Depression period of exceeding materialism. Her New York, often lonely and iconic, speak to a common New York impression many would have, in addition to the skyline and hustle-bustle.
My friend architecture student Liaoran Zhang and I visited Tate Modern for its special exhibition on Georgia O’Keeffe, the Mother of American Modernism.
