At The AGO: Georgia O'Keeffe

 This month will be the last few weeks that the Georgia O'Keeffe exhibition will be at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto. Last weekend, we made sure that we hop on to the AGO to view this one of a kind exhibit of one of America's modern artist. Georgia was born in Wisconsin, USA on 15 November 1886 and died at the age of 98 in New Mexico, USA on 6 March 1986. Georgia is known as the painter of large flowers, New York Skyscrapers and the New Mexico landscapes. She lived in New Mexico in the later part of her life where she fell in love with the location and rugged desert environment. One thing I admire about George is her modernity and use of pastel colours in her painting. It is modern art but easy to relate to rather being too abstract. This exhibit is one of a kind and definitely worth a visit. 
"To create one's world in any of the arts takes courage."
"Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. 
Making your unknown known is the important thing - 
and keeping the unknown always beyond you."
 "You are one of my nicest thoughts."
- Georgia O'Keeffe 
At the AGO till 30 July 2017
