It’s not so long since I mentioned here that Georgia O’Keeffe is one of my most favourite artists whose rare exhibition I had seen in Vienna, a chance I thought would never happen. Seeing her artwork live left me even more impressed than I was before and even after few months that have passed since, those memories stay as vivid as if I saw them yesterday.
What fascinates me is not only her art but also her personality and the way she lived her life; simple (almost austere), intuitive, intertwined with nature that entered through her soul her canvases, strong and independent. When I learned that Brooklyn Museum currently houses an exhibition called Living Modern that focuses primarily on how she presented herself to the public, including showing of her clothes and photographs, I was blown away; it would be perfect to see it after the Viennese one, to have more points of view on the same person I admire so much. But we cannot have everything now because what would we do in our next lives, right? So why I’ll be saving this and thousands of other things to my to-do list for the future life, here are at least some of the photos from the exhibition, along with others including her studio and home in New Mexico.
While there are only few elements I’d adopt to my own style, it’s the perfect connection between her, her clothing, art, home and nature, her biggest inspiration, that I find most enthralling; that each one reflects another. It’s what I’d like to reach with my own style and life in general.
