Georgia O'Keeffe's art consists of recurring subjects such as skyscrapers, flowers, skulls, and desert landscapes that made her an iconic artist of the American modernism movement.
Georgia O'Keeffe has always been wary of categorization and gendered interpretations in her work, in fact as she herself stated, "Men liked to put me among the best painters. I think I'm one of the best painters and that's it."
For the Sketch.inc for Lucie Kaas collection, Danish designer Becky Kemp was inspired by ancient Japanese "kokeshi" dolls, true works of art that tell stories of the past and tradition.
Created from a single piece of fine wood, handcrafted and hand-painted, the style of these dolls is unmistakable and demonstrates how with a few simple lines one can create aesthetically striking design objects.
The thin, cylindrical body serves as a base for the head, which is round and larger than the figure, to enhance the character's face, which is also made with stylized lines. Kokeshi Doll includes some of history's greatest figures and past artists in the fields of fashion, art and music who have become true fashion and style icons.
