Do you see sexual symbolism in Georgia O`Keeffe`s flower paintings?

That pink rose in the left picture is beautiful but makes me think about female genitalia for some reason.

I think we all know what Georgia was thing about when she painted this... Or she just wanted to accuse everyone else of being a perv.
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 1/10/04 - 6:40:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
Of course. She's well known for her irises resembling female genitalia.
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 1/10/04 - 8:10:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
I see the sexual symbolism in everything.


Nice question darling.

15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 1/10/04 - 8:11:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
Of course. She claims it's not intentional, correct?
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 1/10/04 - 9:12:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
How could anyone not??
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 1/10/04 - 9:18:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
The question asked makes me think so.
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 1/10/04 - 9:26:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
Great, now I'll always look at them like that...
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 1/10/04 - 9:30:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well once you bring attention to it, yea, I do. Especially in the one on the left. But I dont think I would've seen anything in the one on the right if you hadn't said something.
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 1/10/04 - 9:34:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have an O'keefe poster in my basement. Everything thinks it looks like a vagina. I agree.
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 1/10/04 - 9:51:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
The one on the left looks like a chicken eating corn out of someone's A-hole.

15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 1/20/04 - 5:08:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
um. yeah!?,
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 1/20/04 - 5:33:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, sure. But what I mostly see when I look at her paintings is another goddamned flower.
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 1/27/04 - 2:31:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
Very similar to the movie "The Wall".
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 1/27/04 - 5:48:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
that was kind of the intent, wasn't it?
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 2/2/04 - 7:03:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
i wanna see that movie (the wall)
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 2/2/04 - 7:19:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, actually I never really did...lol...until now..thanks...
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 2/6/04 - 10:09:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
Only because people said they did, now of course I look at them that way.
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 2/9/04 - 3:45:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
I didn't when I first saw the picture, then I read the question...
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 2/9/04 - 3:47:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
they're all bahginas, right? It was in that movie But I'm a Cheerleader.
Haha, more like georgia O Queef!
hahaha..ha
sorry
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 2/9/04 - 3:58:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
What the hell is a bahgina?
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 2/10/04 - 11:06:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
ever since i've researched her painting in the 8th grade(12th now) i've been kinda... fasinated by her work. it's so flowy and it does resemeble sex in a way i guess.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 6/1/04 - 7:14:23 AM EST (GMT-5)
yeah, i do. in 9th grade my friend was gonna do a history report on her but she changed her mind. my teacher tried to talk her out of it by telling her "Don't you want to do a repost about flowers that look like vaginas". Man that teacher was awesome.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 6/7/04 - 9:45:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
The first time I looked at it I just saw paintings of flowers. All the comments about bahingas and vaginas tell me more about the people looking at the paintings than the paintings themselves. I didn't think or see what most posters here said they thought and saw.

Georgia O Queef was a funny comment
