There is no single page we can find dedicated to Georgia O’Keeffe’s work on flowers which have become synonymous with vaginas for no good reason than if you look closely at a flower, it does in fact resemble, a vagina. So here are a few images from those scattered around the web. Feel free to submit your favourites to add to the gallery. The below excerpt is taken from a site whose author thinks it is ‘unfortunate’ that the paintings are associated with the vagina. We at VT think it’s great.
Georgia O’Keeffe consistently battled against the Freudian interpretations of her flower series. Alike to macro-photography, these paintings glanced deep into the exquisite crevices of orchids and calla lilies, dove inside along the sensuously open petals… wait, stop, sorry, sorry! Flowers. They are just flowers. With Judy Chicago, the feminist art movement of the 1970s attempted to commandeer O’Keeffe for her “feminine iconography,” but she refused to collaborate with them on any projects. Biologically, the centers of flowers are androgynous, not feminine, alright? These flowers were not painted in praise of labia, conversely, these ravenous views are tributes to the sensual forces and ecstasy of nature itself. You perverts.
