Why Georgia O’Keeffe is my style icon

When I say style, I mean in all aspects of life, personal style, home. But more than that the way Georgia lived a life true to herself, a life she wanted to live and that, in itself, was her own kind of success.
Was she a feminist? With words like this about her Art – I think so -. ” “Men put me down as the best woman painter. I think I’m one of the best painters”
She then rubbed salt into the wound later in life by taking a lover 47 years her junior.

She was well traveled, but made a home in the luminous spare New Mexician landscape. A space she filled with beauty in fact it was a life curated with only beauty in mind.

There are many exhibitions about Georgia O’Keeffe around the world at the moment, however the one to put in the diary is the one coming close to home.

N.S.W. Art Gallery has an exhibition starting July 1 -2 Oct.
OKeffe, Preston and Cossington Smith…quite the line up!
