Bella Kaplan – Artist style #1
The challenge this time was challenging because we had to choose an artist and also the subject. I was a little disappointed that there was no the same subject for everyone so I decided to take Georgia O’Keefe an artist that I really like, and to play with flowers, I chose the Hibiscus and I am getting ready to engage in this topic.
Georgia O’Keeffe was born in Wisconsin 1887. She became famous as an artist in New York in 1916. Among her works are large-format paintings of enlarged flowers, displayed up close as if they are visible through a magnifying glass, as well as enlarged views of landscapes (mountains, rocks) and bones or skulls. Many of her works are interpreted as representing Ionic symbols, representations of the female genitalia.
