I Am Woman. Hear Me Rawr.

Published by Samantha under Uncategorized


Truth be told, when I saw the ad on the subway for the Whitney Museum’s exhibit of Georgia O’Keefe, her name sounded very vaguely familiar. It wasn’t until I saw her pieces in person did I realize I had seen her paintings and watercolors before. As an artist, I consider her somewhat of an anomaly, being so well-known for her paintings of flowers as well as skulls. While I think its interesting that she focused on those two objects, I don’t see the connection. I don’t think this is an exhibit that would appeal to everyone, but for the art enthusiast, it is worth checking out.

    I don’t know if I agree with Solana or Alex. This piece is obviously about how cool horse skulls look with flowers on them :D. But then again, since when am I an expert on Art?

    I love your title. Here I am being a feminist again.
    I agree with you that Georgia O’Keefe’s work is not for everyone.

    As life stems from the ashes of death. The painting is very symbolic.

    Solana’s interpretation seems quite probable.

    Maybe the meaning is that life can be beautiful, yet cruel? I like the colors on the painting though. And its done so well that it doesn’t even look like a water painting, but rather an oil painting.

    Is that a horse skull? That’s a nice watercolor painting, even though I don’t get its meaning.
