Red Canna

Georgia O'Keefe. Red Canna. c. 1924.
University of Arizona Museum of Art

 

Georgia O'Keefe "found expression in delicately veiled symbolism for what every woman knows but what women heretofore kept to themselves." - critic quoted by Stokstad
 
"The show is strong...one long, loud blast of sex, sex in youth, sex in adolescence, sex in maturity, sex as gaudy as Ten Nights in a Whorehouse, sex as pure as the vestal virgins, sex bulging, sex tumescent, sex deflated...Perhaps only half the sex is on the walls, the rest is probably in me." - Lewis Mumford reviewing Georgia O'Keefe's work
 
"I hate flowers- I paint them because they're cheaper than models and they don't move!"

Mary Kelly's Post-Partum Document 1973 - 1979
 
Deals with the mother's relationship with her son from birth until he enters school
Visual images of the mother and child emphatically avoided
Subjective elements like diary entries are juxtaposed with distant, quasi-scientific elements like diagrams
Articulates the mother's feelings of possession and loss
The objects stand for the mother's memorabilia and how she makes sense of the gradual separation from her child
