Art for art’s sake

So last weekend we hit the Georgia O’Keefe exhibit at NCMA. I’m not really a huge fan of O’Keefe (though seeing her flower pictures close up I can appreciate the color and beauty more) but the work of artists inspired or influenced by her was pretty cool. For example, Light Atlas by Cynthia Daignault, above. She drove across the US and whenever she’d driven 25 miles on a given day she’d stop and paint the scene. The display consists of 360 different images from the trip.

Loie Halliwell’s work is quite neat

As is Mark Lewis’s Peoria Avenue.

I love taking photos of odd corners and bits of buildings, but Mexico’s Candida Hofer seems to do it better than me.

Or in that one.

Or that one.
