Georgia O’Keeffe – #2

On the old Santa Fe Road


Though a feminist, she didn’t see her work as feminist propaganda, she thought that if her work was condemned feminist it would limit the meaning of her work, that people would only see it as sensual or suggestive of the female sexuality. Though she did make room for the feminist voice.

I still see organic human forms in her work, especially the one above and also some of her close ups of flowers.

What really inspires me about her work is that they weren’t meant to be seen as vulva, they weren’t purposefully painted like that, they let you come to that conclusion on your own. You are not forced into seeing the piece from a narrow perspective.
