GEORGIA O’KEEFE’S NEW MEXICO HOME

terra2

This is the former home of Georgia O’Keefe in Abiquiu, New Mexico. These images, shot by Brittany Ambridge, were featured in a article about this artist’s home. O’Keeffe rehabilitated the original adobe building at Abiquiu. Influences of her 1950s modern aesthetic can be seen in the century-old structure. Adobe fireplaces and walls, and the viga-and-latilla ceilings are typical of New Mexican Pueblo-style architecture. Little of her art is displayed in the home, in stead things that touched her (such as branches, bones, rocks and other found objects that she scavenged from the landscape) are found in many of the rooms.
