One of the things that I really love about arts – especially painting – is its expression of one’s inner self, in a certain way.
It shows – partially or totally – how a person sees the world, its details, its colors, its forms, and how this person interprets the world.
And also, how the others interpret the artistic creations of this person.
From pure contemplation to personal interpretation, arts have multiple layouts to them.
In photography and in painting, for instance, in an audience, one can be fascinated by the colors, one by the shapes, one by the composition, etc.
It is singular to anyone.
A few months ago, I visited a monographic and retrospective exhibition on the painter Georgia O’Keeffe at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
This exhibition was beautiful and informative because not only did it present many paintings of O’Keeffe in a chronological way, but it also dived in O’Keeffe’s career, her inspirations throughout the years, and her most notable professional accomplishments.
I enjoyed the bright colors that O’Keeffe used in her work, as well as the precision and the details of natural elements such as flowers that she highlighted in her paintings through macro focuses. These painted focuses and details were like abstract art.
I also liked the landscapes – urban in New York, and natural, notably in New Mexico – that she painted, they are beautiful.
And of course, I loved her abstract paintings, they are stunning.
All in all, it was a great exhibition that allowed me to see the works of a great artist who skillfully mastered painting and abstract art.
