Demonstrate an understanding of how elements and principles of design may be utilized to strengthen a composition. Students will focus on:
balance, unity, color, emphasis, and movement.
Goals:
Problem:
Create a flower
abstraction
similar to the works of Georgia O’Keeffe. Compositions should be balanced, preferably asymmetrical, and should carry a strong sense of movement. Compositions will be painted onto ceiling tiles and must have an area of emphasis. Changes in value will be used to give volume to compositions organic forms. Choosing a
color

scheme
will strengthen the composition’s sense unity.
Principles of Focus:
Balance
Unity
Emphasis
Movement

Georgia O'Keeffe
Georgia O'Keeffe was born on November 15,
1887
in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin.

She grew up taking
Art lessons
and being encouraged by teachers throughout her school years.
O'Keeffe was determined to make her way as an
artist.
When asked what she was going to be when she grew up. Georgia replied, "I am going to be an artist!"
After high school, O'Keeffe studied Art and was quick to master the curriculum,
uninspired realism
. She soon realized she could never achieve success within this tradition. She eventually quit painting.
Four years later, she was introduced to the idea that the artist's
personal
ideas were best realized through harmonious arrangements of line, color, and value, not uninspired realism.
O’Keeffe felt that certain sensations, ideas, and situations could be
expressed
no other way than through her art. "I see no reason for painting anything that can be put into any other form as well."
O'Keeffe began painting large-scale depictions of
flowers
in the mid-1920s. These are among her best-known pictures. At this time, she had become recognized as one of America's most important and successful artists.
For much of her life she lived in New Mexico, inspired by its
landscape.
"Tonight I walked into the sunset. Sunset is the time when the world appears least structured, when forms tend to dissolve and are replaced by new colors and sensations.”
O'Keeffe acted to suspend
time,
producing art that would capture the temporary; a sunset that never fades, a flower that never wilts.
O'Keeffe continued to paint until the mid–1970s, at which time her failing
eyesight
forced her to stop. She continued working in pencil and watercolor until 1982 and worked in clay until her health failed in 1984. She died two years later, at the age of 98.
