Fu'una, "Portrait of Georgia O'Keeffe"

Providence, Rhode Island 02906, United States

Created By: The Avenue Concept


Fu’una chose to feature Georgia O’Keeffe, one of the most significant artists of the 20th century, best known for her paintings of the New York skyline, radical and enlarged flowers, and the New Mexico landscape, where she lived for the later part of her life. Fu’una juxtaposed a late portrait of the artist depicted in her iconic clothing against a detailed view of an earlier 1945 painting.

Of the work, Fu’una describes: “Georgia is considered one of the most photographed artists of all time. Even after a century her style has an enduring impact… When she moved to New Mexico, her focus shifted to the natural environment and she did several pieces of abstracted bones. This background piece is a well known painting from that series.”

"I had to create an equivalent for what I felt about what I was looking at – not copy it." Georgia O’Keeffe

About the artist:

Fu’una is primarily a two-dimensional artist specializing in murals and soft pastel. While stylistically fluid, her artwork is most easily recognized for its sensitivity and expert use of color, and animals and botanicals often appear in her work.
