In 1929 when she visited a friend in Mexico, her life and art changed. She painted objects found in the desert such as: a sun bleached animal skull and dessert sky. She used the colors of the Southwest in her paintings- tans, grey, reddish browns and whites. She was also interested in painting “negative space”, such as the hole in a pelvis bone or the space between clouds. ” Pelvis, red and yellow,” 1960. Is one of many examples Of this, In this painting, Coffees interprets the pelvis bone With a fiery palette of reds and yellows, differentiating it from the more naturalistic coloring
Of the Other pelvis pictures. Like Georgia Coffee’s paintings because of the beautiful colors and oversized objects. When I look at one of her flower paintings, such as “Red Poppy”, I could stare at it for a long time and find so much detail. Georgia Coffees made a simple object that normally take for granted and turned it into something really important and beautiful. Personally think that Coffees was an artistic genius. She created a new way to look at objects that we take for granted, and paved the way for many women artists.
