Georgia O’Keeffe: A Bouquet of Irises

Tuesday November 20th 2012
Black Iris III
The American painter, Georgia O’Keeffe, was an über-Scorp, with Sun, Moon, Jupiter and Mercury all in the sign that rules – among other things – dissection and sexuality. 
Her bold studies of irises show how such things can be beautiful. Like some other Scorpio artists – Monet, Bacon – O’Keeffe loved to work on the same theme over and over again.

    Gulp! I remember a photo of her standing beside one of these paintings, they are huge. Imagine going into a gallery full of them. Or imagine coming out of a room full of Van Goghs’ after an attack of the emotional Swirlies, and then going into this room. You wouldn’t know whether you were coming, going or just been. 🙂 You’d have to faint, delicately, onto the nearest chaise.

    I think these ones were done in the 1920s. Really must have been pretty shocking.
    Makes me think of Judy Chicago’s Dinner Party which still gets people tsking.
