Georgia O’keeffe

I finally got to the Georgia O’keeffe: Abstraction exhibition at the Whitney this past weekend. Two of my favorite works in the show were “Black Iris” (above), and “Music Pink and Blue No.2.” (below). To me, O’keefe’s work often gets over-simplified and hyper-sexualized. It was wonderful to see the complex color combinations and fluid brush strokes up close, some more abstract than others.

I was surprised to discover that O’keeffe first emerged in the New York art scene with a series of charcoal drawings like the ones below.
